*** PLEASE NOTE: Runners registering on Friday Oct. 23 will need to pick their packets up Saturday morning between 8:00-8:45.  They will not be available Friday afternoon.
Also, as we near a complete sell-out of AppleBear, last minute registrants on Friday or Saturday may not receive their preferred shirt size, but we will do our best to accommodate you.  Thank you for your understanding! ***

This event will be held at Patton Park and will utilize the beautiful Oklawaha Greenway.

The 5k course is very flat with less than 40’ of elevation change.  The course is a well-maintained paved greenway that is 90% shaded.  The race will be timed & USATF sanctioned.

The 1-mile Color Run is also very flat & shaded, and is perfect for runners or non-runners, seniors, and families with children. The Color Run is not timed and will be fun for the whole family with great music & lots of color.

All proceeds will benefit the kids at Bruce Drysdale School.

All paid participants will receive an AppleBear 5k & Color Run t-shirt, one color packet, & colorful sunglasses with their registration, plus there will be several “color stations” along the course & additional color packets for sale at the race.

There will be awards for the 5k men and women’s race winners in each of five age brackets; 1-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50+.
