It's back again- THE SPRINGS RUN! Run, beer, party. Make it 7.2K around Depot Park and down the Hawthorne trail and you will be rewarded with brews, music, friends, and fun. Raise money for springs protection and get your sweat on. This year the run will be followed by an all day festival with music, artists, vendors, and whatever other shenannigans our team dreams up.
Our annual 7.2k Springs Run returns this year on Saturday, January 20th. The race starts at 11:00 AM at First Magnitude and goes down the Hawthorne Trail. We’ll also will also offer a 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk at 11:15 for those looking for something a little shorter. All profits will benefit the Florida Springs Institute. The Howard T. Odum Florida Springs Institute is an educational non-profit in High Springs dedicated to ensuring the wise management and restoration of Florida springs and the aquifer that we all depend upon for our water supply. Registration in the First Magnitude 7.2 Springs Run will benefit the Florida Springs Institute and its efforts to educate students about springs science.
All runners in the 7.2K will get a post-race First Magnitude beer! T-shirts are not included in registration but are available for an optional donation during registration!
Are you fast? Run for the mug! The top 3 finishers in each age and gender group will get their own First Magnitude mug with a beer fill (for winners under 21 years of age, you will just get the mug)
Age groups will be split by gender and are as follows: 15-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, 55-64, and 65+.
Come join us and run for the springs!
