The 9th Annual Run for the Cookies takes place on a scenic loop trail during the onset of spring. It starts at UWF’s Multipurpose field and loops through the trees, winding down the road and back to the field. There are two major hills and a few turns as the course follows the scenery through the wooded trails of UWF. On the plush grass of the multipurpose field, you finish the race with a loop and cross the finish line. The event also includes a post-race snack and an awards ceremony with a DJ. This run is the only race in Pensacola where you can get a box of Girl Scout for participating. This year is the first year that this race will be chip timed!
