Dear Friends,

     This will be Indian River State Colleges 3rd Annual 5k run/walk.  The race will be held at our Pruitt Campus in St. Lucie West starting at 7:30 AM and participants of all ages are invited.  The goal of this event is to raise money for student scholarships while bringing our surrounding community together for a fun time!   There are many ways you can help to make this event a huge success: • Sponsor • Run • Walk • Bring Family & Friends!  We hope to make this yearly event a life changer through providing scholarships to assist our current and future students in the community!  We need your help. We look forward to seeing you at the race!

Thank you for your interest in this years race!  With your help and we were able to raise over $7,000 for student scholarships in 2019.  These funds directly impacting our students lives, enabling them to reach their educational goals!  We are underway in making this years race even better!   If you know a business that would join us as this years sponsor please email us at jcrowe@irsc.edu.

We have gotten a few questions, so we wanted to take this time to answer them. 

Update - 9.30.2020

This year's 2020 Run/Walk is on as scheduled.  Working with our partners at McM Timing, we will be creating an environment that will allow our attendees to feel comfortable while following best practices.  We will continue to communicate with you as we near the event date.  We look forward to seeing you all again at this year's event!
 
 
 
 

PAST COVID-19 UPDATES

Update - 9.18.20

This year's 2020 Run/Walk is on as scheduled.  Working with our partners at McM Timing, we will be creating an environment that will allow our attendees to feel comfortable while following best practices.  We will continue to communicate with you as we near the event date.  We look forward to seeing you all again at this year's event!
 
Some of the steps we are taking to follow CDC best practices are:
     Staggered starting times
     Reduction in high touch areas
     Larger areas for congregation prior to race start
     Increased availability of personal protective equipment (hand sanitizers and masks)
     No formal award presentation
       *All awards will be given to participants after the race date.  **As always runners timings and photos will be posted online shortly after the race concludes.
 
As we continue to adapt, we will keep you posted with any new information.  Looking forward to seeing you on race day!
 
 
*Covid 19 Update:  With all the uncertainty resulting from COVID-19, we wanted to provide an update.  Safety has always been our number one priority when it comes to our IRSC community, and decisions regarding this event will be no different.  As of now, we are hopeful that our Pioneer 5K will be able to take place as normal.  We will continue to monitor guidelines given and proceed as needed.  If we are unable to hold a physical race, we will look to host a digital version.  At this time we are uncertain to what exactly will happen, but we will keep you posted as the race date nears.
