We have rescheduled our May race. The 17th Annual Save the Manatee 5K, 2 Mile Walk and Mini Manatee Mile will be on Sunday, September 27, 2020.

This event is held at Lake St. Clair Metropark, Michigan and run on a paved certified 5K course along the marinas and shores of scenic Lake St. Clair. All participants receive a commemorative manatee finisher medal, race t-shirt and manatee bib; as well as receive free race photos. This event is dog friendly, as the first 100 dogs also receive a dog finisher medal.

We are also hosting the 6th Annual Virtual Save the Manatee 5K. Last year, we had over 1,200 virtual participants from around the country and seventeen countries. If you cannot physically participate in the actual race in Michigan, you can register for our virtual race and bike, swim, rollerblade, run, or walk your own course. Virtual participants receive a manatee bib, t-shirt, and a finishing medal for a $38.00 entry fee.

All proceeds are donated to the Save the Manatee Club to raise money to rescue and rehabilitate injured manatees. Thank you to everyone who participated last year, as we donated $37,000 to the Save the Manatee Club.

Hope to see you again.
