The Argonaut 5k, a Pensacola Runners Association Event, is a fun, challenging 5k and a great way to give back to the Northwest Florida running community! 100% of the profits will go to support the University of West Florida Argonaut Cross Country Team, who give endless hours of their time volunteering at area races each year.
