Runners at the Start of Race to the Taste in St. Augustine.

Race to the Taste 5K Run & Walk

Race to the Taste 5K invites runners of all abilities to enjoy a run on Anastasia Island.


The Race to the Taste and a Taste of St. Augustine has been postponed to the evening of Tuesday, May 30, 2023. This is the first time in 25 years the event has been postponed due to the weather. 

The Annual Race to the Taste 5K Run and Walk will take place on Sunday, April 30, 2023, at 10:30 a.m. The run is called Race to the Taste because it's part of the annual A Taste of St. Augustine event at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre.

Sponsored by EPIC Behavioral Healthcare, this is the only 5K connected to a food festival. Beginning at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre, the in-and-out course goes through Anastasia State Park and the shaded neighborhoods of Anastasia Island, ending back at the grounds of the Amphitheatre, where A Taste of St. Augustine will be in full swing. Participants in the race (both runners and walkers) receive free admission for two to the tasting event and festival.

The Course: Race to the Taste is a race on a certified course through Anastasia State Park and surrounding neighborhoods. This run is an "out and back" race or, more technically, a keyhole race, which begins and ends in the St. Augustine Amphitheatre parking lot.

Race to the Taste course is designed to be wider so as to accommodate a large field of runners. Walkers are welcome, as well as strollers; however, strollers must start at the back.
