About This Activity

Welcome to the Miracles in Color 5K benefiting UF Health Shands Children's Hospital!

Join us for the Miracles in Color 5K on February 9, 2020 at Flavet Field. Miracles in Color is open to anyone who wants to support our cause and have a great time. We couldn't think of a better way for you to spend your Sunday morning than with paint and by supporting a hospital that is so prominent in our community!

The course runs through the University of Florida campus and will have paint stations throughout the course as well as at the finish line. At each paint station, runners will be doused in color.* All participants will be provided with a Miracles In Color 5K white shirt during registration. After completing the course, please kick back with us and enjoy some food and a DJ, all included in the price of registration. 

Our event will have two waves: one timed wave leaving first for those who plan on running the entire course and one untimed fun run wave for those who want to leisurely complete the course at their own pace. Regardless of your running capabilities, there is something at this event for everyone!

Registration closes Friday, February 7 at 11:59 p.m. After that point, no more online registrations will be accepted. We will have onsite registration for only the untimed fun run for $30. Those who register onsite will not receive a t-shirt unless there are extras at the end.

All proceeds will be donated to UF Health Shands Children's Hospital, our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, from Dance Marathon at the University of Florida.


*Don't want to be colored with powder? We will give you something to let our color team know that you want to stay clean!



Check-in will begin at 7:15 a.m. and waves will begin leaving at 8:00 a.m., so be sure to arrive well before then. The timed run will be the first wave, and the untimed fun run will begin at roughly 8:05 a.m. All waves will be sent before 8:20 a.m.

There is parking available at Flavet Field, but please carpool and arrive early to make sure that you are able to run!
