If you have been thinking about running a race in North Florida, you need look no further. 1st Place Sports has been producing quality running events since 1978. Our races, which range from 200 to 18,000 participants, are open to all runners and walkers. Our events help raise over a quarter of a million dollars for charity each year. We also work closely with many high school track and cross country programs to help provide the funds necessary to keep these programs the best in the state.
1st Place Sports has been selected as one of the top running stores in the United States the past three years, and is recognized as the first place to shop for all your running needs. We will continually strive to keep that reputation and hopefully, help make Jacksonville one of the best running cities in the United States.
