About This Activity

This event was created eleven years ago by the family of Jeff Ridgdill, a New Smyrna Beach native, in honor of his memory. Jeff was a graduate of New Smyrna Beach High School and a local teacher for many years.

Cudas UnHooked, a local charitable organization created in support of high school students at New Smyrna Beach High School, has taken the lead on the planning and execution of this race. This annual race supports this charity in honor of Jeff's memory.

Come out and join us on a great course, beautiful views, and support a great course.

In past years, this run/walk was at a length of 4 miles. This year, we are pleased to offer this event as a 5K. We are hopeful this will encourage more participating for everyone.

At the end of the run/walk, participants are invited to to wind down with a light brunch, courtesy of Cudas UnHooked and our local business sponsors. A 1 mile Fun Run for our kids and an awards ceremony will conclude our morning.

Riverside Park is a perfect location for this annual event - a beautiful view over the north causeway, south causeway, and along the river.
