About the event

The Race for Education 5K, a Run/Walk for Hillsborough County Public Schools in partnership with Hillsborough Education Foundation, will proudly take place on April 6, 2024 

We are excited to pick up the pace for public education as we prepare students for life in Hillsborough County Public Schools. In partnership with Hillsborough Education Foundation, join us for our 3rd Annual Race for Education 5K on Saturday, April 6, 2024, as we move to improve mental and physical wellness while celebrating and supporting our students, teachers, and school district initiatives. Runners and walkers of all ages and fitness levels are invited for a fun-filled race down North Boulevard and over the Hillsborough River. Join us for giveaways, snacks, refreshments, student performances, and music to amp you up as you race through downtown.

There is also a 1-mile race option available for families, children, and walkers.
