New Date: October 24, 2020
Due to the Coranus Virus outbreak, we have rescheduled the Palace Saloon 5K to October 24, 2020. Please review your options, and we hope to see you on October 24.
Looking for a FAST and FUN 5K? This is the race for you! The Palace Saloon 5K is Tallahassee’s oldest and fastest 5K road race. There will be plenty of free adult refreshments at the finish line and during the awards ceremony for participants. But don’t worry kids, we will have plenty of other drinks, food, and live music at the finish line provided by our great sponsor Gulf Winds Track Club
The Palace Saloon 5K is now in its 46th year. The course may have changed a few times over the years, but we always finish directly in front of The Palace Saloon on Jackson Bluff Rd. Just a couple of blocks from FSU’s Doak Campbell Stadium in the heart of the college district. This makes the perfect backdrop for a fun-filled morning after the race with live music, refreshments, and cold beer!
This a point-to-point race. While the finish line, awards ceremony, and the post-race party takes place at the Palace Saloon, parking, and the race start are at the James Messer Sports Complex,. Program your GPS to 2800 Jackson Bluff Rd. for the Start and for Public Parking (free) at Messer Field. There is no public parking at the finish.
THERE IS NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION. Race bibs and shirts that were preordered online are available for race day morning pickup beginning at 7:45 am at the start line location.
Because there is no Race Day registration you must register online before midnight on Friday, October 23. If you prefer paper registration, then come to the early registration/ packet pickup at the Palace Saloon on Thursday, October 22 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. and you can register via paper registration, pay, and pick up a shirt (if desired), at that time. Be mindful that race shirts are ordered about 10 days in advance. We always order extra shirts for volunteers and last-minute runners, but late decisions risk not getting your preferred shirt size. In other words, register early if you want a guaranteed shirt size.
Custom beer mugs & monetary awards (CASH) will be presented to:
All awards are donated by Gulf Winds Track Club.
Team registration deadline is Thursday, April 9th at the close of early packet pick-up. Ideally, this needs to be the last opportunity to change a team roster….but we can be somewhat flexible with that deadline…with enough notice to enter the team into the database.
The other great benefit of running this local race is contributing to a couple of great charities. We are supporting the Parkinson's Foundation Rock Steady Boxing program and Javacya Arts Conservatory. Please donate generously.
The 46th Annual Palace Saloon 5K is sponsored by Gulf Winds Track Club, a completely non-profit, volunteer-led organization. All proceeds from the races support dozens of charitable organizations in our community. The race always needs volunteers. Free race shirt for helping.
