5K Run

March 9 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

5k shrimp run

The Cypress Lake High School Athletic Booster Club has exciting news! In conjunction with the annual Fort Myers Beach Lions Club Shrimp Festival, we are proud to announce the return of The Shrimp Run 5k, presented by Cypress Lake High School Athletic Booster Club and Cypress Lake High School. The “Shrimp Run” has historically been one of the most popular races in Southwest Florida. The festive 5k course takes you over the Matanzas Bridge twice while thousands of onlookers cheer runners on! The race starts at 9 am and precedes the ever-popular Shrimp Parade.

The start and finish line will be at Doc Fords, Fort Myers Beach.

Runners and walkers are all welcome. This year we have expanded the age groups and are bringing back the kids run. The Kids Run is a one mile run on the beach sand and will be run on the first Saturday in March.

Contact the event Chair, Lion Liam, liamcf@leeschools.net
