The Volusia County Schools Home Run 5K course will take you by the beautiful Halifax Harbor Marina, along the City of Daytona Beach walking trails, and down historical Beach Street.
The morning & events will include a race start by the Daytona Tortugas’ mascot Sheldon and a Kids Fun Run around the bases! T-shirts, swag bags, and baseball themed Finisher Medals to the first 300 finishers, will make this race a Home Run for all! All of this, combined with music and light food, promises to be a morning of fun for the entire family at Jackie Robinson Ballpark, home of the Daytona Tortugas! Walkers are welcome!
Proceeds from the race will benefit and be divided equally amongst all Volusia County Schools high school track and field programs. Spend a morning with friends, family or co-workers; promote good health, friendship, camaraderie and the thrill of participating together, and supporting our local youths.
