October is National Pedestrian Safety Month! Bike/Walk Tampa Bay and the Florida Department of Transportation District 7 invite you to get outdoors and walk or run during a fun challenge as we raise awareness about pedestrian safety. Sprint for Safety is a fun virtual event for anyone who lives and works in Citrus, Hernando Hillsborough, Pasco, or Pinellas Counties. Choose to run or walk a 5K (3.1 miles) or 1 mile from October 1 through October 31, 2021.
It is easy to participate: Document your time running or walking using the fitness app of your choice, and then upload a screenshot to Race Roster. Complete a 5K and receive a beautiful commemorative race medal. Complete 1 mile and receive a digital Certificate of Completion.
Sign up by September 30 to guarantee your medal. We also encourage you to upload a photo to the gallery from your run or walk.
There is no cost to participate in this event, but if you would like to support our efforts, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to our safety fund managed by the USF Foundation.
