June 3rd UPDATE:

Hello SharkStriders!!!

Due to the Tropical Depression moving in tomorrow, it is with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel the in-person portion of the event. This means that the Bill Frederick Park will remain closed on 6/4 due to inclement weather. This is a decision that we made together with City of Orlando Officials, along with our SharkStride committee, taking your safety as our number one priority. Our decision was based on the latest forecasts that showed high wind gusts, precipitations, and bands coming in tomorrow morning.

HOWEVER! Looking on the bright side of things, we will allow everyone one week to complete a virtual 5k and submit their times!! Run or walk the 5k where you would like, at any point between Saturday and next Sunday (06/12/22) and submit your score to our Instagram (@sharkstride5k) or gmail. Monday afternoon, we will put all of the times together, announce the top runners, and contact you for your prize!

Additionally, you can contact us at our email (info.sharkstride@gmail.com) or via Instagram (@sharkstride5k) to arrange the pick up of the event t-shirt, as well as the medals of the event. Pick up for the t-shirt will be at the Orlando NSU Campus: 4850 Millenia Blvd, Orlando, FL 32839.

Again, we are very sorry for the inconvenience, but we made this decision putting everyone's safety first.


The SharkStride Committee.
