St. Augustine, FL — The Junior Service League of St. Augustine (JSL) announces that the Lighthouse 5k Run/Walk & Fun Run originally scheduled for September 18, 2021 is postponed, with a new date of Saturday, March 5, 2022. JSL members decided to postpone the event due to the recent increase of Covid cases in St. Johns County and surrounding areas.
Participants who have already registered for the race will be notified of the new date. Registration for the event will begin again approximately two months prior to the race. Stay updated at jslofstaugustine.org
In an effort to continue support for the St. Augustine Lighthouse, the League hosts the annual 5K & Fun Run. The inaugural race in 1983 was originally titled the “Bud Light Twilight Lighthouse Run.” The Lighthouse 5K is a chipped race that serves as a qualifier for the famed Gate River Run. Proceeds from the Lighthouse 5K Run/Walk & Fun Run benefit numerous JSL service projects and provide financial support for local non-profit organizations in St. Augustine and the St. Johns County community.
