Once again this November, runners will get on their marks, get set for an awesome evening and go for the gold at the 5th annual Beach to Bar 5k. Bringing a fun twist to the traditional run, Beach to Bar will offer a challenging route traversing not one, but two bridges and a post-race celebration like no other. And the race is not JUST for the fun of it—it will also serve as a noteworthy fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF).
WHAT: Beach 2 Bar 5K Run, 5K+ (it will be approximately 3.2 miles)
Participants will begin their course on the Stuart public beach, make their way across a pair of bridges and end at Carsons Tavern to begin the festivities.

Prizes are up-for-grabs in each race class and gender and all participants who register by November 15th will be guaranteed a free race shirt.

A WORD OF CAUTION: Because cystic fibrosis (CF) is a lung disease and individuals with CF are fighting for breath--and consistent with the CF Foundation’s concern for the health and well being of its employees, volunteers, business associates and visitors--smoking is prohibited in any situation where people with CF may be present, including activities such as special events and CF Foundation-sponsored meetings.
PLEASE BE ADVISED: Because of risks to people with cystic fibrosis (CF), individuals with a confirmed positive sputum culture for Burkholderia cepacia complex shall not attend this event. This is because B. cepacia can be passed between individuals who have CF through close proximity. B. cepacia infection in a person with CF can cause serious respiratory illness and, in some patients, may lead to death. Despite this policy, there might still be some individuals with B. cepacia in attendance. B. cepacia is not a risk for otherwise healthy individuals. For alternative ways to participate and for information about this policy, please contact the CF Foundation at (800) FIGHT-CF or visit our Web site at www.cff.org. Consult your CF care center physician with medical questions.
