Deer Run 5k comes back to Indian Island

Posted

Naval Magazine Indian Island will once again host the Navy installation’s annual Deer Run 5k and 1-mile Fun Run in August.

The popular event is returning after a two-year break. It will be held Saturday, Aug. 13.

“We are excited to welcome our family, friends, and neighbors back on base for our event that Indian Island looks forward to every year,” said Navy Cmdr. Andrew Crouse, commanding officer of Naval Magazine Indian Island. 

The event is free and open to the public. The race will have a 1-mile paved course, where strollers are permitted, and a 5k course on an unpaved route, where strollers are not permitted. 

Race organizers noted that no dogs are allowed on the installation.

Participants will be able to enter Indian Island’s main gate, across Flagler Road from Indian Island County Park, starting at 8:30 a.m. Aug. 13.

A valid form of identification, such as a driver’s license or other state or federal-issued identification with a picture, is required for entry and registration. Visitor parking will be available on base.

Day-of registration begins at 9 a.m., with race kick-off at 10 a.m.

The top three male and female participants to complete the race will receive an award, and all participants will receive a free commemorative Deer Run lanyard. 

A limited supply of race T-shirts will also be available for purchase with a credit card or exact change only, while sizes and quantities last. Indian Island command merchandise including coffee mugs, T-shirts, patches and coins will also be available for purchase with cash only.

Installation officials are reminding the public that some items are prohibited on the military base; drugs or drug paraphernalia including marijuana and marijuana products, alcohol, weapons such as firearms or pocket knives, coolers, backpacks, drones, or cameras with telephoto zoom lenses.
