Event description

Description

Anemia and running don’t mix - so let’s end Sickle Cell Anemia

The Sickle Cell 5K is one of Tallahassee's oldest races. The 2018 event will be the 37th annual event. After working together for many years, in 2017 Gulf Winds Track Club and the Sickle Cell Foundation formally joined forces to produce this event and end sickle cell anemia as fast as possible.


And speaking of fast, the race has always had a fast course. In 2018, it has been redesigned to be even faster, and to be safer and easier to manage. Check out the link to the course map and you will see what we mean - no more climbing up to Orange Avenue or dodging the course on that road. Instead you will get to run along the beautiful St. Marks Historic Rail Road Trail. The start and finish remain in front of Jake Gaither Gym.


We think this is the Fastest Race In Town and we are going to try to prove it the "Fastest Race in Town Challenge."

This means we will be comparing the top-10 times for each finisher in various categories. Then we compare our average time to the times achieved at "that other race" and if we are faster, our runners get a reward.


The race has more volunteers per mile than any other in Tallahassee. It will be chip timed by GWTC and we have a great new design for our mixblend shirts.
