5th Annual 10k Race 4 F.I.S.H

Date: October 19, 2013 Time: 7:30 AM - 7:30 AM

More than 50 island businesses and organizations sponsored the 10K last year, and over a 120 people volunteered their support to make it a huge success. Our premier sponsor is The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company. We need more sponsors and hope the business and local community will once again support us in our efforts.

The race will begin at 7:30am at the Sanibel Community House, and will once again follow a marked 10K circuit around the island, returning to the Sanibel Community House for the finish line. There will also be an expo fair for runners and their families and friends, as well as refreshment tables and water stations around the island for runners.
