Miami's Community Newspapers

The Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce will host its 15th annual Baptist Health Tour of the Gables 5K on Saturday, May 22. The race, which attracted 900 runners last year, takes participants on a beautiful tour through scenic areas of Coral Gables, beginning and ending at the historic Coral Gables City Hall, located on the corner of Le Jeune Road and Miracle Mile, right in the heart of Coral Gables.

The 15th Annual Baptist Health Tour of the Gables 5K, which is a USATF and RCCA certified course, will have staggered start times for the 5K wheelchair, 5K run and 5K walk.

All members and friends of the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce are welcome to participate in this event designed for the entire family. Children under age 18 also are encouraged to register.

The first 900 participants who register will also receive a race packet, which includes a guaranteed custom T-shirt. Awards will be given to the run and walk winners — overall male and female. Medals will be awarded to the top three in each age group. The company with the most participants will receive the coveted Chairman’s Cup, so build up your team and join the race.

Come early, even if you are not taking part in the race, and cheer on all who participate. Free parking is available at the parking garage on Andalusia Avenue, close to Le Jeune Rd.

The cost for participating is: cash or check, $25, before event day, $15 for those under 18. It will be $35, and $20 for runners under 18 on Race Day.

Participants can register online at <>. The 15th Annual Baptist Health Tour of the Gables 5K would not be possible without the generous contributions from sponsors: Baptist Health South Florida, BUNGE, City of Coral Gables, Mercedes- Benz of Coral Gables, and Victoria & Associates Career Services.
