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.
Registrations are FULL for this event.
Register, then run your 5K anytime from anywhere, submit your proof of race and get a medal and t-shirt!
After signing up
