Join the Florida Museum for our fifth annual 5K to celebrate our Survival of the Slowest exhibit! This virtual event allows runners to take part from anywhere in the world.
Have a running group you left behind with a move? Want to challenge your sister in Cincinnati to a showdown? Got a brother you want to beat in Baltimore? Everyone can register and run together!

After signing up
- Send the race coordinator a link/screen shot of your GPS watch, strava or any distance tracking app that shows you have completed your 5K.
