2023 F.I.S.H. 10K/5K

We are pleased to announce the date for our 15th annual road race scheduled for Sat., Dec. 2, 2023. This year’s race marks the first in-person event in recent years. In 2020-2021 the organization offered a virtual only race due to COVID and canceled the 2022 event due to Hurricane Ian. The 2023 10K/5K will also offer a virtual option, but FISH encourages runners to join in-person and stay on the islands for the day or weekend. We are restructuring our race fundraiser to celebrate the resilience of the islands by adding additional activities throughout race day including a 5K to the morning activities, followed by a family day hosted by and in partnership with the Sanibel Recreation Center including a kids’ fun run, games, food and more. To register for the holiday themed kids’ fun run, please click here.

Support for the race is critical as FISH continues to serve the residents and workforce of the islands. Sponsorship opportunities are available at various levels and can be found on the organization’s website, fishofsancap.org. For additional information on the 10K/5K Race including sponsorship, please contact Diane Cortese at Dianerc10@gmail.com or Leah Winkler at leahwinkler12@gmail.com

Registration for the in-person or virtual race will include a swag bag with a race-day bib, freebies from our partners, a t-shirt, and a finisher medal. You won’t want to miss the post-race award ceremony and celebration!
