9/13/17 UPDATE: The Royal Run is rescheduled to Saturday, October 28th. SAME PLACE, SAME TIME, SAME COURSE.
Join us for the inaugural Phil Royal Legacy Foundation "Royal Run 5K" on Saturday, September 16, 2017. Proceeds of the race go to benefit Citrus County's Children's Advocacy Center, Jessie's Place. Previously the Beat the Sheriff 5k, started by Sheriff Jeff Dawsy in 1997. Following the unfortunate passing of Sheriff Candidate Phil Royal, Sheriff Dawsey agreed to pass the torch to the Legacy Foundation to insure this event would continue. Sheriff Prendergast has graciously pledged his continuing support for this worthwhile event and we appreciate all the members of the Sheriff;s Office who are staying on to help and volunteer.
