While this year's run won't include a traditional gathering, runners, walkers and families are invited to come in-person to complete the 3.3 mile course anytime during the race dates. The race course will be marked with signs, and trails are open seven days a week from dawn to dusk. Participants can stop by our chickee hut along the route to take a picture of themselves with our race sign. Use the form below to send it to the SWA for a discount on the 2022 race registration fee!
The Run AWAY 5K is a unique race that takes participants AWAY through cabbage palms, cypress hammocks, marshes and lush pine flat woods, with glimpses of Grassy Waters Preserve and the Renewable Energy Park. It is conducted in partnership with the nonprofit Resource Depot, which works to inspire creativity, conservation and community engagement through reuse.
