More than just a race, the Superhero race brings together child welfare agencies and the community to highlight the 1100 youth who are in local foster care in Sarasota, Manatee, and DeSoto Counties, while providing a family-friendly event with music, a kiddie zone, food, and giveaways.
We believe that kids in foster care and those who care for them are some of our community's most incredible heroes, which is the reason we have chosen a superhero theme. So don't be shy... come dressed as your favorite hero and get ready for an awesome race and cause!
An amazing venue at Nathan Benderson Park in beautiful Sarasota, FL. Close to everything University Town Center has to offer!
We offer a chip-timed, USATF certified 5K (Certification Code: FL17013TY).
Kiddie Zone with attractions. Post-race food included for all runners. DJ and superhero-themed music. Local vendors and child welfare community partners.
