DESCRIPTION
The 10th Annual Superhero 5K and 1-mile Fun Run will be held on
February 20, 2021, at Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota.

2021 WILL BE 10th YEAR & WE WILL BE ADDING A 10K
(HAPPY 10 YEARS)

This is a Foster Care Awareness Event.

More than just a race, the Superhero 5K brings together child welfare agencies and the community to highlight the nearly 1200 youth who are in local foster care in Sarasota, Manatee, and DeSoto Counties, while providing a family-friendly event with music, a kiddie zone, food, and giveaways.


We believe that kids in foster care and those who care for them are some of our community’s most incredible heroes, which is the reason we have chosen a superhero theme. So don’t be shy… come dressed as your favorite hero and get ready for an awesome race and cause!
