The Little BIG Run

Our Little BIG Run was a BIG success! On Saturday, May 5th, we had over 200 runners for our inaugural event. Participants enjoyed beautiful views of the St. Johns River along with special goodies in their race packets. To top it off, three lucky runners were gifted the opportunity to go to Walt Disney World or attend a Jacksonville Jaguars or Jumbo Shrimp home game. Thank you to our event sponsors FIS, Jacksonville Jaguars Foundation, Pelocity and Sherwin Williams.

The Little BIG Run on Saturday, May 5, 2018 is a “little run for a BIG cause” that will mark the inaugural 5K race benefiting the one-to-one mentoring programs of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Florida (BBBSNEFL). In addition to members of the running community and general community at large, Bigs and littles will be participating and volunteering at the event, as well as BBBSNEFL agency staff and Board Members. The little BIG run is a family friendly event offering both 5K and 1 mile timed races through the historic Riverside Community. Whether you are a runner, walker, or stroller rider, this is the perfect event for everyone! Individuals and groups are welcome.
