SJR State to host Viking 5K Run

St. Johns River State College will present its fourth annual Viking 5K Run on Saturday, May 27. The fun-filled event is open to runners, health-walkers, families and anyone who seeks to raise his or her heart rate and support SJR State’s athletic programs. All proceeds are deposited by the SJR State Foundation and administered by the SJR State Athletic Association according to the needs of the athletic department and student-athletes. 

The Viking 5K Run will begin at 8:00 a.m., starting at the Bronson-Mulholland House, 100 Madison Street, Palatka, and will continue across the Palatka Memorial Bridge before returning to the start/finish line. 

Pre-registration for the race is $25 for the general public and $20 for SJR State employees, students and alumni.  Registrations will be accepted on the morning of the race with a $30 entry fee. 

The overall male and female winners of the Viking 5K will each receive a $100 prize, and awards will be presented for first, second and third place male and female winners in each age division. 

The Viking 5K Run is presented by Waste Pro, with additional sponsorship provided by Baker’s Sporting Goods, Oliver Oaks and Vines, Putnam Community Medical Center and Palatka Health Care Center.
