Why run the Palace Saloon 5K?
Looking for a FAST and FUN 5K? Do you like free beer? This is the race for you! Palace is Tallahassee’s oldest and fastest 5K road race, and the finish line is stocked full of cold beer, free to all participants assuming you are of legal drinking age of course, sorry kids! But don’t worry, we will have plenty of other refreshments, food, and live music at the finish line provided by our great sponsor Gulf Winds Track Club
The Palace Saloon 5K is now in its 45th year. The course may have changed a few times over the years, but we always finish directly in front of The Palace Saloon on Jackson Bluff Rd. Just a couple of blocks from FSU’s Doak Campbell Stadium in the heart of the college district. This makes the perfect backdrop for a fun filled morning after the race with live music, refreshments and cold beer!
The other great benefit of running this local race is contributing to a couple of great charities. We are a completely non-profit event put on by a great group of volunteers. All proceeds from the race are given back to our featured charity partners The Boys Choir of Tallahassee, and Parkinson’s Outreach Rock Steady Boxing What are you waiting for?
