    In an effort to continue our support for the St. Augustine Lighthouse, the League hosts an annual 5K & Fun Run! The inaugural race in 1983 was originally titled the “Bud Light Twilight Lighthouse Run.” Hosted by RaceSmith, Inc. the Lighthouse 5K is a chipped race that serves as a qualifier for the famed Gate River Run. The Fun Run is a true treat for the little runners! Don’t miss the awards ceremony following the race on the beautiful Lighthouse grounds. Each year the staff at the Lighthouse provides activities for the kids such as face painting, arts and crafts, and more! Don’t miss the opportunity to support the Lighthouse and climb the tower for FREE! 

    Proceeds from the Lighthouse 5K Run/Walk & Fun Run benefit numerous JSL service projects and provide financial support for local non-profit organizations in our community.
