Annual Lighthouse 5K and Fun Run to be held March 3


The Junior Service League (JSL) of St. Augustine will host its annual Lighthouse 5K & Fun Run on Saturday, March 3 at the St. Augustine Lighthouse and Maritime Museum.

The 5K racers take their marks at 4:30 p.m. and will enjoy a flat, 3.1-mile USA Track and Field (USATF)-certified course that will take them through historic Lighthouse Park and the Davis Shores subdivision. Online registration for the race will close at noon on March 2, but walk-up registration will be open from 2 to 4 p.m. on race day. Fees will vary depending on date registered. The top overall male and female runners will each be awarded $100.

JSL will also be hosting the run’s annual Night Fest, which opens to the public at 4 p.m. and will feature live music, activities for kids, concessions, the chance to climb the tower and tour the Lighthouse grounds. There is no cost for admission.

All proceeds benefit the Junior Service League of St. Augustine and its charities. To register for the race, or for more information, visit
