The Villages of Hope is a special project sponsored by Awakenings House, and Connections 2 Hope.  Together we are helping women of NE Florida, providing a sanctuary, a place of refuge, healing, and restoration for women seeking a life free from trafficking, sexual exploitation and addiction.  Event & fundraising proceeds will go towards new construction of tiny homes called Villages of Hope.

ALL Runners/Walkers will receive a Medal and T-Shirt with their registration

Start Format

To allow for social distancing at the start we will be scoring over all winners based on 'gun time' and age group winners based off 'chip time'.  We ask for elite runners going for the win to toe off first at the start line.  There is no need to stand crowded together at the start line.  All runners will receive an official 'chip time' based off the time they individually cross the start line to their finish.  The 'chip time' is used for all age group ranking.

We ask that all runners wear a face mask during packet pickup / checkin, and that you practice social distancing during the event.  Runners do not need to wear masks while racing.
