Race Day/Time
SATURDAY, October 28, 2023 - 4PM 

1340C A1A South St.
St. Augustine, FL US 32080

This is a 5K run through Anastasia State Park and surrounding neighborhood.  The roads are covered in a hammock with lots of shade and through some of St. Johns County's most beautiful terrain. The race begins at the Amphitheater, proceeds with a run through the park with turns and hills, then through one of St. Augustine’s beautiful neighborhoods. The last leg of the run shoots the runners back down the main park road to the finish line at the Amphitheater. The night ends with awards and a benefit concert!

We understand this is a later start time, but we want to avoid the heat of the day and when you finish the race for a good cause, you will have lots of time to enjoy the benefit concert at the amphitheater!  Food Trucks will be available for food and beverage purchases.

Scenic 3.1 mile Anastasia State Park certified course and surrounding quiet, shaded neighborhoods. 

The Shine A Light race is chip timed by RaceSmith. Walkers are encouraged to participate! Strollers are allowed, although we ask they start in the back. Thank you for your understanding!

Charity Event 
Founded in 2018, Epic-Cure® is a 100% volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) organization with the primary mission of ending food waste and food insecurity, particularly among the most underserved communities in NE Florida. Since inception (December 2018), Epic-Cure has rescued and distributed more than 15.5 million pounds of food (primarily fresh produce, meat, and dairy) to the food insecure, with a zero waste model. Epic-Cure undertakes a holistic approach to the multifaceted problems surrounding food waste and food insecurity, emphasizing:
(1) environmental solutions: keeping food out of landfills where it would otherwise emit harmful greenhouse gases, especially methane;
(2) the choice method of free food distributions to reduce food waste and preserve the dignity of our volunteers and beneficiaries;
(3) education through nutrition and skill centered cooking classes for Title 1 school children, active military, and veterans suffering physical and mental health ramifications of their service.  Epic-Cure is partnered with the Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Centerstone and the 5 Star Veterans Center to teach life skills and potential career paths, and provide both self-reliance and a chance to rise above current, difficult economic, social, health, and mental circumstances;
(4) medical attention: medical clinic personnel on site for medical screenings, vaccines, and nutrition advice with Flagler Health+, Flagler Care Connect+, and the Wildflower Clinic; and
(5) emergency response as the emergency food responder for Feeding Northeast Florida and a preferred partner of FEMA.
