5K’s in Hernando County

Weeki Wachee and Spring Hill

Saturday, May 2nd


What a better way to spend a Springtime Saturday morning than taking in a 5K run or walk!  Well on Saturday, May 2nd, you have your choice of two separate local 5K’s to participate in.  The Weeki Wachee 5K Wilderness Run is being hosted by the Florida Council on Crime and Delinquency(FCCD) with proceeds benefitting the Wounded Warriors in Action and other local charities.  It will be held at the tranquil Preserves of Weeki Wachee, 2121 Osowaw Blvd. in Spring Hill at 7:30 a.m.  You’ll be able to spend your morning running or walking amidst the southernmost coastal hardwood hammock in western Florida, providing a variety of nature schemes.  From the frontage of the Weeki Wachee River to the pine-covered sandhills, it’s sure to be a serene run to start your weekend off right!

The other option for a 5K run or walk is at the Color Vibe Run in Spring Hill.  This colorful, fun-filled day will take place at Anderson Snow Park, 1360 Anderson Snow Road.  Registration starts at 7:00 a.m. with the race beginning at 9:00 a.m.  With multiple color stations throughout the race, you are sure to get blasted with color for additional fun.  The color that is used is 100% safe, biodegradable and made in the USA.  There will be color packets available for sale along with some other possible needed items for the race like, a Color Vibe bandana, to keep the color out of your mouth, sunglasses to protect your eyes  or maybe a fun pair of socks or a tutu to add to the fun!

With the fun of the day being to get colored up, there is plenty of it along the way and at the finish line party.  That’s where you’ll want the additional color packs to treat your competitors or friends to an additional burst of color!   Color throws will also happen during the party, every 15 minutes!   So turn those running shoes into dancing shoes and celebrate this exciting day of exercise, friendship and color!

So rather its a quiet, calm, relaxing run or a vibrant, wild and crazy run, its sure to be a great way to start off your weekend!
