We’re one of South Florida's premier running events in Fort Lauderdale, offering the community, schools, churches, and organizations a running experience on the city's historic landmark, Sistrunk Boulevard. This amazing race experience supports the Chris Smith All-Star Classic and their efforts to end childhood obesity and get kids to play. In addition, this race will support the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life and Scleroderma Foundation.
The Sistrunk 5K is an exciting race near downtown Fort Lauderdale on the Historic Sistrunk Boulevard. Come run or walk through history and have a great time. This race travels down the Historic Sistrunk Boulevard in the Dorsey Riverbend Neighborhood close to downtown Fort Lauderdale and Fat Village.
