5k SCADaddle© Events Schedule
SCAD Research 5k
The 5K SCADaddle© for Research events are our major fundraisers with survivors, their supporters and families/friends who lost someone to SCAD coming from across the US and other countries. These run/walks are organized by volunteers.
Time to dust off those running shoes and get ready for the 33rd Annual Run for the Turtles! Our run supports the Sea Turtle Conservation & Research Program at Mote Marine Laboratory and is the Program’s major fundraiser — it’s helping us help sea turtles! Registration will be opening soon!
On Race Day: Registration begins 6:30 a.m. at the Siesta Key Gazebo, south of the pavilion. The 1-Mile Fun Run or Walk begins at 7:30 a.m. and the 5K Manasota Track Club-Sanctioned Run begins at 8 a.m. Please note: The 1-mile fun run and 5K races are entirely on the beach/sand.
To help support our eco-friendly mission at Mote, please bring your own reusable water bottle to the race! We will NOT have plastic water bottles to handout.
The PV Python 5K is chip timed. The route travels from Pine View School, through an adjacent neighborhood, back to the school along a short trail, and wraps-up on the Pine View track, where your friends and family can cheer you to the finish! This is a Manasota Track Club sanctioned event. Police will be stationed along the route, and there will be two water stations.
5K Trophies: Overall Youth & Adult Male and Youth & Adult Female, Masters, Grand Masters, Senior Grand Master and Veteran; 5K Age Group: 5 Year Age Groups – Male & Female (6 Deep)
The 5th Annual SUP & RUN 5K event will be held Nathan Benderson Park to benefit Operation Second Chance (OSC). Take a moment to learn more about OSC here: www.OperationSecondChance.org
The SUP & RUN 5K gives athletes three great races in one to choose from. A 5K Run, a 5K SUP or a 5K SUP & RUN. Athletes participating in the combination SUP & RUN, run the 5K first and then hop on their paddle board for a 5K paddle around Nathan Benderson Park. The event draws top runners and SUP’ers who compete for cash prizes and the not-so-serious athletes have a prominent place in the event. The SUP & RUN 5K is a family style event.
WALKERS ARE WELCOME and encouraged to attend.
The SUP & RUN 5K race venue is world-class, the medals/dog tags (all finishers receive one) are AMAZING, the race shirts and SWAG are truly head and shoulders above most races and the food & post race celebration party is FUN! FUN!
