Celebrating 27 years, the scenic 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 the grounds of the Florida School of the Deaf & the Blind. Both races finish at the North Shores Community Park for the post-race celebration with food, beer, and music! A family 1-Mile Fun Run will immediately follow the 5K. Come to run and enjoy a beautiful morning in Vilano!
