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 on April 21st by joining us for the Shearwater 5K on the Trails and Fun Run/Walk.
Shearwater's 5K on the Trails began in 2017, and we quickly realized that this is to be an annual tradition for our community. This 5K & Fun Run is Shearwater's way of celebrating Healthy Living, while bringing the greater St. Johns community together to raise money for St. Johns County Public Schools. All Proceeds from this event will benefit Timberlin Creek Elementary School, Switzerland Point Middle School, and Bartram Trail High School. In addition to raising money for these schools, the 5K on the Trails takes place on the weekend of Earth Day. What better way to celebrate Earth Day than by stepping outside to enjoy a nature run on these beautiful trails?
After the race, stick around to enjoy an Earth Day festival at the Kayak Club, followed by the 5K on the Trails award ceremony. The 5K race will begin at 8:00 a.m., with the Fun Run starting at 9:00 a.m. All event activities will wrap-up by 10:00 a.m.
The first 200 runners to register will receive a race t-shirt, and runners 21+ will receive a custom Shearwater pint glass. Custom medals will be awarded to the first 200 finishers!
Awards will be given to first place finishers in each age category.
