Tallahassee’s Oldest and Fastest 5K!
Looking for a FAST and FUN 5K? This is the race for you! The Palace Saloon 5K is Tallahassee’s oldest and fastest 5K road race. There will be plenty of free adult refreshments at the finish line and during the awards ceremony for participants. But don’t worry kids, we will have plenty of other drinks, food, and live music at the finish line provided by our great sponsor Gulf Winds Track Club
The Palace Saloon 5K is now in its 46th year. The course may have changed a few times over the years, but we always finish directly in front of The Palace Saloon on Jackson Bluff Rd. Just a couple of blocks from FSU’s Doak Campbell Stadium in the heart of the college district. This makes the perfect backdrop for a fun-filled morning after the race with live music, refreshments, and cold beer!
This a point-to-point race. While the finish line, awards ceremony, and the post-race party takes place at the Palace Saloon, parking, race day registration, and the race start are at the James Messer Sports Complex, 2800 Jackson Bluff Rd.
The other great benefit of running this local race is contributing to a couple of great charities. We are a completely non-profit event put on by a great group of volunteers. All proceeds from the race are given back to our featured charity partners. What are you waiting for?
