5K Run for Peace – Now a Virtual Run Set for Nov. 21-22, 2020

Thanks to all the runners, walkers and volunteers who took part in the Sixth Annual 5K Run for Peace in 2019 at the St. Augustine Beach Pier. Thanks to your support, we tripled the amount of money raised for the center compared to the previous year!

NEWS FLASH: 2020 RUN FOR PEACE 5K on Nov. 21 is now VIRTUAL!

In these unprecedented times the COVID-19 virus has brought, we as an organization are playing our part in preventing the spread and keeping community safe.

After much debate and consideration, and to ensure the health and safety of our staff, vendors, volunteers and race participants, the Betty Griffin Center staff, board of directors and race directors have made the decision to turn the 7th Annual Run for Peace 5K into a VIRTUAL 5K.

The Run for Peace Virtual 5K can be run anytime between November 21-22, 2020. We will be hosting fun contests and giving out prizes all weekend. Follow our Run for Peace 5K Facebook Page to stay informed.

Those who have already signed up for the run will be automatically transferred to the virtual 5K. Runners will still receive a Run for Peace 5K T-Shirt and a Finisher Medal! Drive-Thru Packet Pick-up dates and locations will be announced at a later date!
