About This Activity

Formerly the 1U Run for Your Life Fitness & Wellness 5K Run/Walk:

The Get Moving Tampa Bay 5k Walk/Run was organized to get the community active and welcomes runners and families at all fitness levels. Runners will enjoy the park’s packed shell roads and race-day freebies like an event t-shirt and prizes for the top three finishers, based on recorded race times. Virtual runners can join us from afar, at the same time, and report their race times back to us for a chance to win prizes. Families and supporters will enjoy the park’s natural amenities like plenty of shade, playgrounds, acres of wildlife and scenery; and day-of amenities like music and more.

We’re excited to partner with Florida Hospital and other sponsors to get Tampa Bay moving. Physical activity is well-known to reduce the risk of obesity, type-2 diabetes, heart disease, some cancers, and even improve mental health. Meanwhile, 22.1% of Bay Area residents report no physical activity and 64.5% are overweight or obese, with obesity contributing to a number of conditions. Help us raise awareness: Register and tell a friend.
