2023 MOVE 5K Fun Run and Walk

Fruit Cove Baptist Church is hosting its annual Move 5K Fun Run & Run/Walk to support Fostering Hope, a Fruit Cove Baptist Church ministry that exists to raise awareness to vulnerable children in our community and support foster and adoptive families.

Please join us in this fun family event while raising money for a worthy cause.

*T-shirt is not guaranteed for registrations received after October 7th.

The 5K course starts and ends at Fruit Cove Baptist Church. The route will go south on SR13 into Julington Creek Plantation and returning along the same route to the church.  The Fun Run course will be located at the Backfields.

It’s a certified 5K course: 5K USATF certified course # FL18047TY

The purpose of the USATF course certification program is to produce road racecourses of accurately measured distances. For any road running performance to be accepted as a record or be nationally ranked, it must be run on a USATF-certified course. In addition, the certification program is very important to the average road racer, as well as those of exceptional speed. Most runners like to compare performances run on different courses, and such comparisons are difficult if course distances are not reliable. No one can truly establish a personal best if the course distance is not accurate.


Everyone who completes the 5K race will be awarded a medal.

Awards will be presented to the top three men and women overall, first master’s male and female overall, and the top three in each of the following male and female age groups: 10 & under, 11-13, 14-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79 and 80+.

Everyone who competes in the Fun Run will also be awarded a medal.  Top participants will also be awarded.
