Race Day

Welcome to Florida’s Fastest 10K! We are thrilled to announce our third annual Apryle Showers Run – Florida’s Fastest 10K in Ponte Vedra (Nocatee), FL. The day is filled with spirited competition and fun for all ages.

10K Course

The beautiful town of Nocatee has a 6.2-mile loop that is wide open and mostly flat. This is the reason Apryle Showers Run is called Florida’s Fastest 10K. Those that have run the course often comment that they ran their fastest time. Runners from all over the area (including Apryle) have enjoyed running the loop, and we think you will too. Along the way, the friendly residents of Nocatee will be cheering you on. There is also in-course entertainment with music and a band. So, please sign up and participate in the 3rd annual Apryle Showers Run — Florida’s Fastest 10K and see if you can earn your fastest 10K time!
