Our mission is to save lives through raising awareness and educating teens to Always Wear Your Seatbelt, if not for yourself, for Laura & Eddie.

FAQ When and where does the race take place? Saturday April 8th, 2017. The race takes place in the beautiful city of Belle Isle, which is close to Orlando International Airport off Orange Avenue. The race course is in the beautiful residential area, surrounded by Lake Conway, one of Greater Orlando's largest lakes. The southern portion of Little Lake Conway, another large lake, is also in Belle Isle.
How long is the course? The 5K is 3.1 miles.
How will I be timed? The race uses an electronic timing system that records race time and place via a transponder chip that will be given out at registration. Each individual competing in the 5K is required to use the race chip. Official times will not be recorded without a chip. There will be a clock at the finish line to view your time.
How will I receive my results? Official results are posted for the top runners in each category, race staff has all results for on-site inquiries and results are posted on the race website.
Can I use my own race chip or tag rather than utilizing the one that is provided? No, for this year's race, we are not equipped to utilize individuals’ personal chips or tags. Each participant will be provided with a custom chip and bib.
Who gets a T-shirt? Only pre-registered runners that successfully complete the registration and payment processes seven weekdays before the race are guaranteed a free race t-shirt. Several hundred additional shirts are printed for the race. Pre-registered runners in the seven days leading to the race are first to receive their shirt and preferred size. The remaining shirts for walk-up and voucher runners are available for free until they run out.
What if I need help along the way? Qualified emergency medical professionals are available to provide assistance at the start/finish lines.
Can I participate in the event with my dog? Sorry, as much as we love our pets too, the safety of participants is our main concern. Therefore, we do not allow pets on the course.
Can I participate with a stroller? Yes, nurturing future generations of runners is a priority and demonstrating healthy lifestyles to our kids is special. Please, however, start in the later part of the runners.
Should I bring my own water? Yes, but a water station is available on the course and after the race.
How much does it cost? Early registration is $25 per person, depending on the date. In person registration is $30per person. Look for additional multi-race discounts at RunSignUp.com
I will be out of town on race day and unable to participate. Can I get my money returned? We appreciate your race registration. We are unable to issue refunds. We are not in a position to credit your credit card or issue checks.
Will the race be held if it's raining? The race is a "rain or shine" event. All participants are encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather, such as in a rain coat or hat. Umbrellas can pose a safety hazard to others, so please do not bring them.
What will be provided after the race? An awards ceremony will take place after the race.
Can I transfer my entry to someone else? We have a strict NO TRANSFER policy.
