2nd Annual - Earth Day 5K

  • April 09, 2022
  • 7:15 AM - 9:00 AM
  • Jonathan Dickinson State Park


Tomorrow (Friday April 8th) is the LAST day to sign up to run or walk our Earth Day 5k!


We love the earth, it’s beautiful, amazing … and it needs our help. The phrase Earth Day originated in 1969. It means “a day’s observance of the need to protect the Earth’s environment”, and in today's busy world, it's more important than ever!

Our race will take you back along the Kitching Creek Trail in the west end of the park, winding through beautiful scenery and along the tree-lined canopy of the famous Loxahatchee River.

Proceeds benefit the Friends of Jonathan Dickinson State Park, Inc.; a 501c(3) providing direct support to help enhance the ecological, historical, and cultural resources of our beautiful park.

When: Saturday, April 9th

Where: Jonathan Dickinson State Park – Kitching Creek Pavilion

NOTE: It takes 15 minutes to drive from the ranger station to the event race area. Please take this into consideration when planning your race start time.
