UPDATE to START TIME:  Don't forget to set your clocks before getting your pre-race sleep!  DAYLIGHT SAVINGS time starts Sunday, March 8, 2 a.m. so "Spring Forward" The Shark Fin 5K will start at 8:15 a.m. DST instead of any previously advertised start time you may have seen. (Our flyers are wrong, OOPS!)

We still have plenty of custom embroidered hats and custom SockGuy socks for selection during your registration.  Shirt sizes are running low.  You can opt for "NO shirt, hat or socks" and save $5.  If you'd like a shirt but your size is SOLD OUT, select "MySizeOUT. Check@race for$5shirt" and after your race finish you can check back to see if shirts in your size are available for only $5 that you saved.  Socks, hats and any extra shirts remaining will be available for $10.

The Shark Fin 5K is a family-friendly run/jog/walk that will take you on a flat, fast journey on the Venice Airport Festival Grounds before a scenic loop along the Intercoastal Waterway on the Venetian Waterway Trail and back to the finish.  ALL Shark Fin 5K finishers will get the Shark Fin custom finisher's medal.  The Shark Fin 5K will be professionally chip timed with overall, category and age group awards given for 8 & under, 9 & 10, 11& 12, and 13 & 14 year-olds then 5 year age-groups to 85 and over.

The Shark Fin 5K event registration offers a gender specific short sleeve tech shirt or a custom Run-Dri embroidered running hat or custom SockGuy socks. If you would like both a shirt and other swag, be sure to select your shirt in the Giveaway selection and you will be able to add-on socks and hat later during registration.
