Passavant-Powerade 5K & 10KThe Passavant-Gatorade 5K/10K is the longest consecutive running competitive race in Jacksonville. This year is our 23rd anniversary.

Both courses are USA Track and Field (USATF)-certified. Runners should be prepared for a P.R. as the course is mainly flat and fast! The race begins and ends at Passavant and is run through mostly residential areas on the city's west side.  We have a new, faster course for 2015! 5K and 10K participants run together until the 1.25 mile mark, where the 10K runners head south, then west for an out and back and the 5K runners head east towards the finish line.

Both races qualify for the SRRC's (Springfield Road Runner's Club) Participation Point Series.

Proceeds go to the New Directions Warming and Cooling Center.
