Shearwater is one of St. Johns County’s fastest selling communities. What makes it the place where so many people are putting down roots? Maybe it's the freedom to choose from 40+ home designs. Or maybe it’s the connection you share with nature and neighbors. Help us strengthen that connection on April 27th by joining us for the Shearwater 5K on the Trails and Fun Run/Walk.
Our 5K on the Trails began in 2017 and continues to be an annual tradition for our community and the greater St. Johns and Duval county area. This 5K & Fun Run is Shearwater's way of celebrating Healthy Living, while bringing the greater community together to raise money for St. Johns County Public Schools. All Proceeds from this event will benefit Timberlin Creek Elementary School, Switzerland Point Middle School, and Bartram Trail High School.
After the race, stick around to enjoy the Post-Race Celebration at the Kayak Club, followed by the 5K on the Trails award ceremony. The 5K race will begin at 8:00 a.m., with the Fun Run starting at 9:00 a.m. All event activities will wrap-up by 10:00 a.m.
The first 200 runners to register will receive a race t-shirt, and runners 21+ will receive a custom Shearwater pint glass. Custom medals will be awarded to the first 200 finishers!
Awards will be given to first place finishers in each age category.
