Description

It had been a while since we were able to have a "Foolishly" good time in person, and after the year that 2020 was, we sure had a Foolishly great time at the 2021 Fools Run 5K on Manasota Beach Road.

Manasota Beach Road was a beautiful route with glorious tree canopy, but you know what we missed?? Being able to see the spectacular Gulf of Mexico! So, we are SUPER DUPER excited to announce that this year's Fools Run is returning to its original home at Maxine Barritt Park on Venice Island!!!

Be sure to follow our Facebook page to be up to date on all the shenanigans!! https://www.facebook.com/FoolsRun5k

Last year we were able to raise a whole bunch of money for Miss Venice Fastpitch!
It is the goal of the Fools Run to partner with a different foundation/cause every year, because we truly feel that we should share the love and help as many people in our community as possible. Stay tuned for who this year's beneficiary will be <3

This WILL be an IN PERSON event!!
The run will be held April 2nd, 2022, at Maxine Barritt Park, with a start time of 8am!

This will be a chip timed road race along Harbor Drive, starting in front of Sharkey's, and finishing at the pavilion. Your finishing time will be texted or emailed to you based on what you have set up through RunSignUp, so make sure you put the right info, like yours, not your ex's cousin's info, they don't care how fast you are. Last year those pesky Covid rules would not let us do awards but guess what is ok for this year?!!! AWARDS!!! Wahooo!!! You know that those Fools over at Gulf Breeze Apparel are sure to come up with some sort of baller awards, so be ready to run as fast as your little legs will go! And of course, ALL finishers WILL receive a Foolish finisher's medal! Because who wants to run a race and not get a medal?! We're totally going to feed you and give you some drinks as well, but we're still shopping the scratch and dent section so stay tuned on what we're throwing at you. Can't make it out to run with us in person, but you still want the awesome race swag?! Join our Virtual event and we'll mail you the swag approximately 2 weeks after the live event.

Packet pick-up will be Friday, April 1st, details TBA

Packets will also be available for pickup on race morning 7:00am - 7:45am under the pavilion.
