Celebrate spiders! Our seventh annual run is the Ta-RUN-tula 5K to get all of your legs moving and invite you in to our new special exhibit, Spiders Alive! The race will be a combination of nature trails and quiet roads here on the UF campus.

This is a fun run, so go at your own pace. We won’t be recording times or giving placement prizes.

Not in Gainesville? We have a virtual option for people who want to take part remotely! Everyone who participates, in-person or virtually, will receive a shirt and medal. In-person runners can also use their medals to receive free entry to Spiders Alive! on race day.
