THE SPRINGS RUN returns Saturday, February 4th, 2023! Run, beer, party. Make it 7.2K around Depot Park and down the Hawthorne trail and you will be rewarded with brews, music, friends, and fun. Raise money for springs protection and get your sweat on. Once again, the run will be followed by an all-day festival with beer releases, music, artists, vendors, and whatever other shenanigans the First Magnitude team dreams up.

Don’t miss out on being a part of Gainesville’s largest race!

All profits will benefit the Florida Springs Institute. The Howard T. Odum Florida Springs Institute is an educational non-profit in High Springs dedicated to ensuring the wise management and restoration of Florida springs and the aquifer that we all depend upon for our water supply. Registration in the First Magnitude 7.2 Springs Run will benefit the Florida Springs Institute and its efforts to educate students about springs science.

All runners in the 7.2K will get a First Magnitude beer included with their registration! T-shirts and pint glasses are not included with registration but are available for an additional donation to the Florida Springs Institute during registration! ONLY AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER UNTIL 1/18/2023.

Are you fast? Run for the mug! The top 3 finishers in each age and gender group will get their own First Magnitude mug with a beer fill (for winners under 21 years of age, you will just get the mug).

Age groups will be split by gender and are as follows: 15-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, 55-64, and 65+.

Not up for 7.2K? The fun run 1-miler takes off immediately after the main race and goes around Depot Park and back.
