As you navigate 2021, why not have some F-U-N along the way!
We will be joining you in-person for 2021 plus we've got a fun twist to our traditional Navi-Gator 5K race! In addition to the in-person 5K, Fun Run & Virtual 5K events, we also have a month-long Challenge Option to kick off your summer!
New for 2021: Custom Finisher Medal!
If you're up for a Challenge, join us for a 43-mile Swamp Stomp kicking off on the Feast Day of St. Brendan May 16 and running through June 12. The Swamp Stomp Challenge will take you virtually along the 43 miles of trails through the Everglades. Who knows, you may even see a few alligators! = ) Simply run/walk from any location between May 16 and June 12 and submit your completed miles after each run/walk or all at once online to earn some Swamp Stomping bling worthy of your achievement & a Swamp Stomp Challenge shirt!
If you choose to get a head start to the summer and join the Swamp Stomp, you've got two additional options! You may choose to finish your last 3.1 miles (5K) in-person at the event with us for just an additional $10 and a chance at Awards for double the bling! Sign up for ONLY the Swamp Stomp Challenge & during registration you'll be asked to "ADD-ON" your last 5K for $10.00.
Or, if you saw the shirts & LOVE them BOTH (5K & Swamp Stomp)!; sign up for BOTH the 5K & Swamp Stomp Events during registration!
Please continue to spread the word to support St. Brendan's Church & their missions!
