- Hi, my 12 year old son Alexi who turned 12 in July would like to participate in your 5k. He has never participated in a public event before. He was very encouraged by the fact that it said there were also age category trophies. Does that mean there is a 12 year old section? Or how do your age groups and trophies work? I would love for this to be an encouraging experience for him, which is why I ask. Many thanks Florian (Sarasota) Cell phone (310)459-1800 [email protected]Hi Florian, thanks for getting in touch and I hope you are having a great week. I am so glad to hear that your son would like to take part in this event. Your son will be competing in the 10-14 year olds age group and if he comes in the top 3 he will win an award. All finishers in the Fort De Soto 5K earn the unique gold running starfish medal! :)
