Now in its 24th year, the Vilano Bridge 5K & 10K Run, starts at the Vilano Beach Community Center and Park and winds through the Vilano Beach community, crossing the scenic Vilano Bridge with its sweeping views of the Intracoastal and area beaches. Our 10K run will continue to wind through our Vilano area communities. Both races finish at the North Shores Community Park for the post-race celebration with food, beer, music, drawings & FUN! A family 1-Mile Fun Run will immediately follow the 5K. Come to run, stay to play!
Your registration will go to supporting important projects in the Vilano and North Shores communities. This year our charity donation will go to the School for the Deaf and Blind.
T-shirts guaranteed to the first 800 at packet pickup!
