Superhero 5K presented by Professionals United 4 Parkland
October 23 @ 7:30 am - 11:30 am
Professionals United 4 Parkland is excited to host the 2nd Annual Superhero 5K on Saturday October 23, 2021 at Quiet Waters Park. While this is the 2nd Annual 5K it is our Inaugural live and in-person 5K. We pressed through the challenges of 2020 by converting our originally scheduled live and in-person 5K to a virtual event. The support from the South Florida community was great for the virtual 5K, from both participants and sponsors, but we know the live and in-person event will be even better.
The Superhero 5K is a chipped time event and will provide awards to both top 3 overall and top 3 in each age group. The age groups are Men’s and Women’s 1-8; 9-14; 15-19; 20-24; 25-59; 30-34; 35-39; 40-44; 45-49; 50-54; 55-59; 60-64; 65-69; 70-74; 75-79; and 80+. We encourage all participants to dress in their favorite superhero costume. We will host a costume contest for most original and most realistic superhero.
The Superhero 5K promises to be a fun, competitive, and energenic day for everyone. This is a great event to form a team with your family, friends, or co-workers, to support a great cause and have alot of fun. Create or Join a team during registration and save 10% off each entry.
