ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. - Aug. 10, 2022 - PRLog -- Investing in Kids (INK!) and Old Town Trolley Tours of St. Augustine have announced this year's Annual Jail Break 5K run and walk fundraiser. The event will be held on Saturday, October 22, beginning at the Old Jail Museum, 167 San Marco Blvd. in St. Augustine, Fla., with race start at 7:30 a.m.

This family-friendly event includes adult and children "jail breakers" who plan their escape from the 130-year-old historic venue and run through picturesque, historic areas of St. Augustine also known as The Nation's Oldest City. Scenic ocean, river and Intracoastal Waterway views are featured in the run over the Francis and Mary Usina "Vilano" Bridge, and wrap up at Vilano Beach Pavilion, 20 Vilano Road in St. Augustine. The event is a 5K USA Track & Field (USATF) Certified Course # FL17069TY.

New this year is a team challenge for St. Johns County School District students, families, friends, faculty, and staff. The school with the highest number of registered participants will receive a one-of-a-kind Jail Break 5K Team Challenge trophy, award accolades, and a $1,000 award. Prize money will also be awarded to the second and third place school teams registering with the second and third highest number of event participants.

Festivities will also feature entertainment and activities for runners and attendees, and a pre-race warm-up at the Old Jail Museum. All runners will be rounded-up as "prisoners" as they begin the race and will be transported back to the Old Jail from the finish line at Vilano Beach by shuttle.

A Halloween costume contest sponsored by Ghosts and Gravestones and decided by a panel of local celebrity judges will include more than $1,000 in cash prizes. Runners and walkers are encouraged to participate while wearing a costume to be considered for one of three awards for best costume. Distinctive t-shirts are available with the size of shirts guaranteed and this year's unique finishers medals to those who register by Saturday, October 1.
