Welcome to the Tampa Bay 5K for Autism & 1 Mile Run for One, Run for ALL!  


******In light of the recent actions taken by the City of Tampa, Hillsborough County, all of the ongoing efforts in place to address the issues of the pandemic of COVID-19 and with great consideration to the health and safety of our runners, walkers, families, community partners, resource vendors, volunteers and our city, we have thought long and hard about our upcoming 3rd Annual Tampa Bay 5K for Autism & 1 Mile Run for ONE, Run for ALL!

We have determined that the best course of action is to make the 3rd Annual Tampa Bay 5K for Autism & One Mile Run for ONE, Run for ALL! a completely VIRTUAL event.  Our plan is for everyone who is registered and all new registrants to Run their Race Virtually on March 21st or any day that you would like. 

We have your T-Shirts, We have your 5K Finisher Medals and WE have your 1 Mile Participant Ribbons!

We will have 2 opportunities for your Virtual Packet Pickup where you will be able to pick up your Race Bib, T-Shirt, Medal for the 5K and/or Ribbon for the 1 Mile.  We will also have your Race "goody bag" as well.  

The Virtual Packet Pickup Schedule is:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Thursday, March 19th 3-7pm at the RUNNING CENTER - 14427 N.
