Join us for our 5th Annual, Little Big Run, 5K/1 Mile race that will be held on Saturday, January 22, 2022 at the Southbank Riverwalk presented by Availity and Publix Charities. This year, we are combining our race with our National Mentoring Month celebration. This provides participants the opportunity to take advantage of free food, drinks, games and music. Trust us, you don't want to miss this event!

The purpose of this event is to raise funds and awareness for BBBSNEFL and our one-to-one mentoring programs. Little Big Run is a great opportunity to focus on connecting with the environment, building a sense of community and starting off the new year with healthy habits. The great thing about our run is - you have two ways to participate! You can join us on Saturday, January 22, 2022 at the Southbank Riverwalk or participate anywhere, virtually.  All participants will receive a unique race t-shirt, a custom finisher medal, and a bib to either track your time (in-person) or a custom bib to celebrate your participation. 

Note: Youth 12 and under can participate in any race for $10. Adjusted pricing automatically applies at checkout. 

Parking can be found at the DCPS Admin Building: 1701 Prudential Drive, Jacksonville, FL 32207. Start/Finish will be located at the start of the Southbank Riverwalk (closest to DCPS).
