On November 21, 2015, Blingrunners LLC and the Myakka River State Park hosted the Inaugural Myakka River Half Marathon/5K, “Run for the Memories.”

The event was a tremendous success, attracting 646 runners from 11 different states and 3 foreign countries. The 5K was also part of the Zoomers Kids Race Series.

The event raised over $15,000 for the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, and the friends of Myakka River State Park.

In 2016, this event will become an exclusive live event of Florida Compassion Foundation.
