The 5K route, a new course, begins at Sanibel Beach Place and will be southbound straightaway toward the beach on John Morris Road - with one turnaround - and a sprint to the finish. Click here to continue reading the story.


  1. I feel sorry for that cyclist who was killed on the Sanibel bridge on May 7th. May his soul peace in heaven...

  2. This is really sad and a great loss indeed to all of us who have had contact with him. Gallieno was a very pleasant and accommodating personality. May the LORD comfort his family!

  3. I was sadden by this story as well. We need a barrier dividing the bridge and rumbles, I think that's what they are called. I like the white bike. To the Family and Friends, I'm really Sorry for your loss! I loss my 15 year old son last year, Cameron Ford, he was hit by a teenage driver on Tralfalgar Rd. So, I know exactly how it feels!

  4. It was a beneficial workout for me to go through your webpage.The theme of this post is very glorious.

  5. The William Wilson Memorial 5k Run and Walk was established to remember and honor the life of the late, William Bancroft Mellor Wilson.
