Shearwater is one of St. Johns County’s fastest selling communities. What makes it the place where so many people are putting down roots? Maybe it's the freedom to choose from 40+ home designs. Or maybe it’s the connection you share with nature and neighbors. Help us strengthen that connection and celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd by joining us for the Shearwater 5K on the Trails and Fun Run/Walk.
The 5K will start and finish near the Kayak Club amenity center with a resort-style pool and state-of-the-art fitness center. Refresh after the race with craft beer and root beer floats, tasty food trucks, and a DJ-provided soundtrack.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Timberlin Creek Elementary School, Switzerland Point Middle School, and Bartram Trail High School.
The first 200 runners to register will receive an event t-shirt, and runners 21+ will receive a Shearwater pint glass. Custom medals will be awarded to the first 200 finishers!
