Welcome to the 38th Annual Sunshine Festival July 4th Race! Generations have enjoyed this fun for the whole family event!

The 5k race winds through the beautiful live oak and Spanish moss-lined streets of St. Simons Island at 7:00 AM! This is a USTAF Certified 5k route.
The 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk will be held immediately following the 5K at 8:00 AM. The 1 Mile Fun Run will start and finish at the same location as the 5k.

Start/Finish Location: Kings Park, 601 Mallery Street, St Simons Island. (Across from Mallery Park)
Starting line will be sorted by expected pace, fast people upfront, walkers, and strollers in the back.

Bathrooms are in Mallery Park, and we will have porta-potties.

Fees include a high-quality short-sleeve T-shirt (youth and adult sizes) or Tank Top (adult sizes). Shirts are by far our biggest race expense, we never wish to have too many leftover, but we do desire for every runner to have a shirt! Please Register! For backup, we have previous years' race shirts and club running socks.
