The 11th annual No Name Race 5k Walk/Run is set to take place in the Lower Keys Saturday, Jan. 15, benefiting the Domestic Abuse Shelter of Monroe County, Fla.
The 3.1-mile race begins at 8 a.m., presented by the shelter and coordinated by the Key West Southernmost Runners Club.
The event is based at the Old Wooden Bridge Fish Camp on Big Pine Key, where walkers and runners start and end their trek. Race participants twice cross the No Name Key Bridge, a concrete span that replaced a wooden bridge decades ago.
Awards await the top male and female finishers in age groups ranging from 9 and under to 70 and older. A post-race celebration with refreshments and prizes is planned.
Pre-registration is Friday, Jan. 14, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Centennial Bank, 200 Wilder Road, Big Pine Key, just off U.S. 1 bayside. Final registration is at 6:30 a.m. race day at the Old Wooden Bridge Fishing Camp.
Packets also can be picked up Saturday morning beginning at 6:30 a.m. at the race site.
Cost to enter is $20 per person in advance or $25 after Jan. 13. For entrants under age 15, registration is $10 per person.
The event is a fundraiser for the domestic abuse shelter, whose mission is to reduce the incidence and impacts of domestic and sexual abuse by directing victims to appropriate programs and services.
