Get ready to MOO-VE IT!

Calling all runners! Registration is now open for the inaugural MOO-VE IT 5K and one-mile fun run, scheduled for March 4, 2017. Sign up at

This exciting event will take runners on a tour of recent development in Downtown Jacksonville. The course will begin and end at the Cowford Chophouse, taking participants down Bay Street to EverBank Field and back. After the race, we invite all runners to join us for a block party with live music, delicious food from the Cowford Chophouse’s sister restaurants (Ovinté, Bistro Aix, and Il Desco), and beer to toast their participation in the race.

Proceeds from the race will benefit the North Florida School of Special Education, an incredible school that improves the lives of students with mild to moderate intellectual disabilities through the achievement of academic, vocational, and social skills. Funds raised from the MOO-VE IT 5K will support the school’s physical education department and running team.

The North Florida School of Special Education’s running team and many staff members will participate in the MOO-VE IT 5K. Runners will have the opportunity to run the 5K with a NFSSE student; participants can note their interest in being matched with a student runner on the online registration form.
