2024 Bushwacker 5K
Over the years, the running event that turns into a tropical beach party has helped organizers raise more than $100,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters and more than $200,000 for other charities. The race begins in Gulf Breeze at the National Seashore and finishes at the Pensacola Beach Boardwalk. Organizers RunPensacola.com, Running Wild and Cap’n Fun Runners say this year’s event will continue the Bushwacker 5k legacy. Come run in Paradise!
