Post Hurricane Irma update (10-04-2017)

Thank you for your patience as we deal with the recovery efforts after Hurricane Irma.

After several meetings and exploring all options, we regretfully announce the cancellation of the 2017 UPS 5K to benefit United Way of Miami-Dade. Coral Gables and neighboring municipalities have set event dates and are unable to accommodate our race this year.

In the last four weeks, our friends at United Way have been hard at work helping with community relief and rebuilding efforts. It’s your support of United Way that allows them to respond in times of crisis, as well as respond to every-day needs. We are happy to share that your race entry fees, less incurred costs, will be donated to Hurricane relief efforts and United Way of Miami-Dade.

We would love for you to enjoy your official race t-shirt. Look for details on where to pickup your shirt in an email from TeamFootWorks.

From UPS, TeamFootWorks and United Way of Miami-Dade, we appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you at next year’s race.

Coral Gables City Hall, 405 Biltmore Way

The UPS 5K Benefiting the United Way of Miami-Dade takes participants through the beautiful city of Coral Gables and will run on our new scenic course. The race still starts and ends at the City of Coral Gables Historic City Hall at a festive post-race party at Merrick Park. The park is across the street from City Hall at the intersection of Le Jeune Road and Miracle Mile.

CANCELLATION POLICY

Race Management reserves the right to postpone or cancel the event due to events out of Management’s control such as a natural disaster or other emergencies. No refunds will be issued under these circumstances. Management may also alter the course and distances for the safety of the athletes.

      Strollers are allowed at all of our events. We just ask that you be considerate of other participants and start the race at the back or side so as not to impede or injure other runners and walkers. Remember you and your stroller take up more room that just a runner or walker, so please give yourself and others around you plenty of space to participate safely.
