Making your miles count! 

Registration for the 2020 Fish Out of Water Virtual 5K is CLOSED!

More information coming soon for the 2021 Fish Out of Water 5K!

Join us for our first ever Fish Out of Water Virtual 5K Race! The Fish Out of Water Virtual 5K is a chance to get out and get active in your local community while making your miles count. From September 28 - October 4, we're encouraging the REEF community and ocean enthusiasts everywhere to get moving in the name of conservation. You can choose to run, walk, hike, or bike, completing the 5K (3.1 miles) distance in one day or broken into smaller sections over the week.  

When you register for the Fish Out of Water Virtual 5K you will choose to join a Virtual Fish Team from one of our 11 Volunteer Fish Survey Project regions. At the end of the race week, we'll highlight the results of each Virtual Fish Team. Check out our Virtual Fish Teams page to see which team you'd like to be part of. 

Proceeds from your Fish Out of Water Virtual 5K registration will support REEF's Oceans for All Fund. Join in REEF's commitment to increasing inclusive programming in science, diving, and conservation. The Oceans for All Fund provides support for individuals who have had limited opportunities to learn about, experience, and explore the ocean through REEF's programs. By participating in the race, you're making a difference in the lives of individuals and the health of the oceans.

Make a difference with REEF—join us for the Fish Out of Water Virtual 5K!

  • Limited edition race shirt 
  • Race bib with fish team 
  • Certificate of completion

  • The joy and pride of doing something good for yourself, others, and the oceans!
