Get involved Pensacola! Spring 5K Walks & Runs.

Tis' the season for Charity 5K Runs in Pensacola
Pensacola hosts over 50 running events in the Spring 2012 season.
We've compiled a fairly comprehensive list of Spring and Summer walks and runs, including 5K's in the Pensacola area. So pick your favorite(s), register, and lace up your sneakers!

Pensacola features a large number of beach front runs- runs occur on walking track along beach.
