Dear Lighthouse 5k Runner,

First we would like to thank you for your continued support of the Junior Service League of St. Augustine. We were all so excited to see you at our annual Lighthouse 5K on September 18th. Unfortunately, due to the recent spike in COVID cases in St. John’s and surrounding counties as well as the highly contagious nature of this virus, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our Lighthouse 5K Race in every effort to keep our community safe. 

The good news is we have already selected a new race date: Saturday March 5, 2022! You have the option to participate in the race on March 5th or donate your race registration to the Junior Service League of St. Augustine and the many local non-profit organizations we support in the community.

JSL of St. Augustine and the charities we support thank you and appreciate your generous support as a Lighthouse 5K participant. We hope to see you all at our Lighthouse 5K Race on March 5th, 2022!

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new event date once it is set, and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience!

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs, and to help the charities we support. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

In an effort to continue our support for the St. Augustine Lighthouse, the League hosts an annual 5K & Fun Run! The inaugural race in 1983 was originally titled the “Bud Light Twilight Lighthouse Run.” The Lighthouse 5K is a chipped race that serves as a qualifier for the famed Gate River Run. The Fun Run is a true treat for the little runners! Don’t miss the awards ceremony following the race on the beautiful Lighthouse grounds. Each year the staff at the Lighthouse provides activities for the kids such as face painting, arts and crafts, and more! Don’t miss the opportunity to support the Lighthouse and climb the tower for FREE! 

Proceeds from the Lighthouse 5K Run/Walk & Fun Run benefit numerous JSL service projects and provide financial support for local non-profit organizations in our community.
