The annual UF Habitat 5k is designed to help raise money and promote awareness for the efforts by Habitat for Humanity and for affordable housing in Alachua County. We encourage all club members, their friends, members of their family and any UF student to sign up and run for a great cause.

The funds raised during the race will be used for critical home repair projects for deserving families in Alachua County, books and school supplies for children moving into Habitat homes, as well as our current Habitat home built solely by UF students. 

This year there will be 2 options to participate:

1. In-person Habitat Hustle 5K

  • Cost: $20

  • The first 60 people to sign up and pay get a Habitat Hustle T-shirt included with race admission! Registration after the first 60 sign-ups includes a blue Habitat for Humanity T-shirt (not 5K specific), along with the race bib, raffle ticket, and post-race treats.

2. Virtual Habitat Hustle 5k
