    This race is a fundraiser for the Treasure Coast Manatee Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing environmental education through the Manatee Center, focusing on the conservation and preservation of the Indian River Lagoon, marine life within the lagoon, and the surrounding ecosystems.
    The first 200 5k participants are guaranteed a unique Manatee Center 5k finisher’s medal, t-shirt, entry into a runner’s raffle, and a cold beer from Sailfish Brewing Company at the finish line!
    Overall awards will be given to overall male and female, masters, and top three in each age category M/F (every 10 years).
    For the untimed one-mile and kids run, participants will receive a finisher’s medal and raffle entry.
    Raffle Prizes include:
    – Sailfish Beer
    – Waterlust gift cards
    – More!
    ** extra tickets $5 now until the race starts!
    The 5k course is UATF-certified and starts in front of the Manatee Center in historic downtown Fort Pierce, meanders through the center of town before catching water views going over the South Bridge and back, finishing along the scenic Indian River Lagoon.
