The 2019 HCBA 5K Pro Bono River Run is a family friendly event that supports pro bono legal services in Hillsborough County. Registration is open to all individuals who work in the local legal community.

We have made a few improvements to the run this year to ensure it continues to be the success it has been for the past 10 years. The run will now start at 10:30 a.m. and will be located entirely along the Riverwalk from Water Works Park down to USF Park and back. This will reduce any conflict with ongoing development and traffic, both vehicular and pedestrian, occurring along the original run route. The run will still be chip-timed for those who are competitive at heart! To read more about the improvements to the run, please click here to review the read the recent article appearing in the Lawyer magazine.

The goal of the run continues to be the pledging and performance of pro bono service from runners and walkers participating in the race, who also encourage others to support their participatoin by pledging their own pro bono hours. This year, we are seeking to increase pro bono service pledges by our Run participants with our new tagline for the run - #5K for 5K -- highlighting our goal of raising 5,000 pro bono hour pledges through the run. To that end, we are offering a reduced run registration rate of $25 for everyone who pledges at least 25 hours of pro bono service for this year's Run.

PIG ROAST INFO: Immediately after the race, the HCBA will be hosting the 16th Annual Judicial Pig Roast/Food Festival on the grounds of the Stetson Tampa Law campus. All Run participants are invited to attend for free. This is a separate event, however, and requires separate registration.
