The Celebration of Running 5K is part of a month-long celebration (and sale) at Track Shack. This event kicks off the 37th anniversary for the store and is the first of six premier Orlando running and walking races known as the “Track Shack Running Series.”
Participants from all fitness levels are invited to walk or run the 3.1-mile course located throughout quaint neighborhoods on the outskirts of downtown Orlando. Paid entrants will receive a commemorative T-shirt, a finisher’s medal, ice-cold refreshments, Florida Hospital’s interactive health screenings and special prizes awarded to significant finishers at the end of the race.
Kids' runs are free for all children. Distances range from 100 yards to 1 mile and children will be placed in age appropriate groups. Registration is on race day at race site. The first 125 registered participants will receive a t-shirt. The Kids’ Runs start and finish at the finish line.
Enjoy a scenic route as you celebrate running with Track Shack and support Orlando Science Center at the same time. Proceeds benefit the Science Center through the Track Shack Foundation and will be used to “inspire science learning for life” through informal science education opportunities and engaging experiences for all ages.

One small step for man; one giant leap for science!
For the 22nd straight year, Track Shack's Celebration of Running 5k presented by Florida Hospital benefited Orlando Science Center. More than 2,400 runners woke up early and ran 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) to raise money for science education programs at the Science Center.
Race through the photos and remember that it's never too early to start training for next year!
