We did it! September 28 - October 4, 497 participants from 37 states and 8 countries took part in REEF’s Fish Out of Water Virtual 5K. Whether you ran, walked, biked, or hiked, thank you for getting active to support marine conservation. Together, we completed more than 2,485 meters or 1,540 miles.


Your time and effort will help build a better world today and for future generations. Your 5K registration fee goes directly towards REEF’s Oceans for All Fund, which provides ocean science programs for underserved communities and those with financial need. Thank you for making a difference!

Share your race photos and stories with us on Facebook (@REEF.org) or Instagram (@REEF_org) and email explorers@REEF.org. Check out this album of race photos from your fellow participants. 

From now on, the Fish Out of Water Virtual 5K will coincide with World Oceans Day (June 8) each year. We hope you'll join us for the 2021 event - more information and registration are coming soon!

From all of us at REEF, thank you for participating in our first-ever Fish Out of Water Virtual 5K. We hope you enjoyed your experience and feel accomplished, knowing that you came together with like-minded individuals to do great things for our oceans.

We look forward to seeing you at the starting line next year!
