We are thrilled to be hosting 5th annual Running of the Bulls 5k this year! The Running of the Bulls 5k directly supports Bloomingdale High School Students. In the past, it has been held at Bloomingdale High School. Last year due to School District Covid-19 protocols we had to move the location of the race to the Hillsborough County Fairgrounds in Dover. We’re happy to be back there again this year! This beautiful course is a mix between a road and cross country race. It is not a technical course. You will love the shade of the trees at the fairgrounds! January is the best time of the year in Florida for a 5k!
Our in-person 5k will be conducted within guidelines established by the CDC, state and local governments, and school administration. As such, our provisions are subject to chance. Our safety precautions will evolve and change as we plan. Our number one goal is to host a safe in-person event. You can expect an email closer to the race day to let you know of our safety precautions.
We will announce more about our packet pickup when we get closer to the race date on January 15. Participants will receive a race shirt, bib and bag of gifts from our sponsors.
Race Start Info:
The 5k starts at 8 a.m. on Saturday, January 15 at the Hillsborough County Fairgrounds, located at 215 Sydney Washer Rd, Dover, FL 33527.
Fairgrounds Access Info:
The entrance to the fairgrounds will be closed off at 8 a.m. The gates will be shut when the race starts (with someone standing by to let people in or out in case of an emergency). Because our 5k utilizes the driveways of the grounds, spectators must arrive before the race starts at 8 a.m.
Additional Race Day Details:
You will receive an additional 5k details, including specifics about packet pickup and how to access your race results closer to the race date. If you have any questions at all, please email [email protected]
Thank you again for being part of the Running of the Bulls 5k! We very much appreciate your support of Bloomingdale High School and the Rajun’ Bull Band.
