Race Festivities & Goodies
The Publix Run to the Arts isn't just a race, it's a full morning of fun that kicks    
off Sunday morning at ArtFest Fort Myers with exceptional art, entertainment, and
children’s art activities. Your registration fee guarantees you a spot in the race as well as
all of these runners-only goodies.

Artistic T-shirt
You'll get your very own Run to the Arts t-shirt with beautiful art by ArtFest Fort Myers artist, Callie Gray. Sunset Fishes is printed on a performance T-shirt. Check it out on our website or in the images on this page. Register by January 4 to make sure you get your size!

Tasty Breakfast
Your race bib is your ticket to the post-race breakfast, featuring tasty Publix treats - muffins & bagels with all the trimmings; bananas; yogurt; coffee and a few surprises.

Group Art Experience
After you've worked out your body, you'll have time to exercise your creativity. Talented artists will be on hand to involve you in a group art creation – optional of course. The 2015 Silk Experience was a "grand hit".

Race Awards
ALL Awards (age group and overall) will be given based on CHIP TIME. There is a starting time mat and a finish line time mat. 94% of the responses to the Survey of 2015 Publix Run To The Arts participants said “Chip timing for all awards” - - you ask and we respond.

Medals will be given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each age group, plus special awards
for male and female overall, masters, grand masters, and senior masters.
