The 7th Annual Book It 5k race will work to promote literacy and early learning in young children who visit the FSU PrimaryHealth clinic.

Event Details

The Book It! 5K Race was founded with hopes of ending cyclic patterns of poverty in rural corners of the world. Our mission has recently changed to accomplish that same goal right here in Tallahassee. Specifically, the race's profits will benefit the Florida State University College of Medicine and the strides they have taken in the FSU PrimaryHealth clinic to meet the health needs of people in our local community. The money raised from Book It! will go directly toward buying books through the Reach Out and Read program. This program focuses on the importance of early reading and learning in children. The proceeds of this race will buy the children's books that will be given to young children at the end of their checkups.

The 7th Annual race will begin with check-in at the Integration Statue on FSU's campus at 8 am on Saturday, April 4th, 2020. The race begins at 9 am, and the 5K will go through campus and end at the Integration Statue, where there will be a celebratory reception.

Tickets can be purchased online for $15. Pre-Registration ends on March 8th. If you register by this date, you are guaranteed a free T-shirt. We will email you if you Pre-Register to confirm your shirt size. Online registration will be open until 11:30 pm on April 3rd. Tickets will be sold for $20 at the gate, but a shirt is not guaranteed. Registration fee includes refreshments. Prizes will be awarded to First and Second places for men and women. Runners who are below 18 years old should have an adult supervisor present during the race.
