ABOUT THE RACE
RACE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
In March of 2021, the Skyway 10K returns as a virtual event! Runners and walkers of all levels will once again have the opportunity to support the Armed Forces Families Foundation for the fourth consecutive year!
The Skyway 10K is unique in that every registration dollar is donated to the Armed Forces Families Foundation. Your support helped our event raise $642,880 for the Armed Forces Families Foundation (AFFF) in the 3rd Annual Skyway 10K Bridge Run held in March 2020. For the 4th Annual Skyway 10K, 100 percent of all registration dollars will once again benefit the AFFF and support our military and their families!
Adding to the excitement, the first 2,000 registrants for the 2021 Virtual Skyway 10K will have the opportunity to bypass next year’s lottery system and directly register for the 5th Annual Skyway 10K Bridge Run in 2022!**
The 2021 Virtual Skyway 10K is sold out.
The 2021 Skyway 10K will be 100% virtual out of an abundance of caution in current circumstances related to COVID-19. This precautionary measure is to ensure the safety of our participants, volunteers, and staff. As always, your participation helps support the Armed Forces Families Foundation.
How it Works
Simply run or walk a total of 10 kilometers (or 6.2 miles) anywhere you’re legally allowed to run or on a treadmill between March 7th and March 31st.
After you’ve completed the race distance, you’ll upload your completion details to the registration platform. Registration link to come!
The First 2,000 registrants from the 2021 race will be eligible to bypass the lottery process for the 2022 Skyway 10K!**
Please note that the Skyway 10K 2021 is a Virtual Event and participants may complete a 10K anywhere pedestrians are legally allowed. Pedestrians are NOT permitted to be on a limited access roadway which includes I-275 and the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.
**Please note that lottery bypass assumes the 2022 Skyway 10K Bridge Run is permitted to proceed as an in-person run. Planning for the 5th Annual Skyway 10K in 2022 already has commenced. However, because the actual organization and operation of the Skyway 10K is dependent on factors beyond our control, we will not reimburse or compensate those entrants for this year’s Virtual Run should the 5th Annual Skyway 10K be canceled or be unable to be held due to any circumstance.
Registration fees for the 2021 race will not apply to next year’s race registration fee. While we welcome runners of all ages to participate in the Virtual 2021 event, please be aware that all participants in an in-person 2022 event will be required to be 16 years of age or older by race day.

ARMED FORCES FAMILIES FOUNDATION
100 Percent of every Skyway 10K registration dollar will benefit the AFFF, going directly toward projects to support military families.
TO DATE, THE SKYWAY 10K HAS RAISED MORE THAN $1.8 MILLION FOR THE ARMED FORCES FAMILIES FOUNDATION IN ITS FIRST THREE YEARS.
We all know that the first line of support for our troops is their families. Oftentimes those family members don’t have the support they need to endure the difficulties surrounding months or years of deployment. The Armed Forces Families Foundation was established to help give these families a sense of community support and well-being while their loved ones are away fighting for our freedom.
100 PERCENT OF ALL DONATIONS RECEIVED ARE USED TO FUND INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS TO SUPPORT OUR SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN AND THEIR FAMILIES.
The Armed Forces Families Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that utilizes 100 percent of funds to give back to local communities to support military families. The AFFF is comprised of a 100 percent volunteer-based organization, which enables the Foundation to operate without any overhead costs. With over $4.8 million raised, the AFFF strives to continue to make a difference in our military communities.
The commitment of the AFFF has led to the completion of over 50 infrastructure projects that benefit the families of our servicemen and women for years to come. Our focus is primarily on areas of significant need that often fall outside the tight budget constraints of the military and its family support organizations. All funds remain local so donors can see their dollars at work. Please visit armedforcesfamilies.org for more information or to make a donation.
