Registration is open for the fourth annual REEF Fish Out of Water Virtual 5K! Between June 5-11, you're invited to join with fellow ocean lovers by getting active to support marine conservation! You can choose your favorite activity: run, walk, hike, bike, swim, or even paddle! You can complete your 5K in one day or throughout the week, participating from anywhere in the world. For all the details and registration, visit www.REEF.org/5K.
Proceeds from the Fish Out of Water 5K support the REEF Oceans for All initiative. Oceans for All supports scholarships, programming, and outreach activities to provide ocean experiences and education for equity-deserving groups. Visit this page to learn more and watch a video about Oceans for All.
When you register for the 5K, you’ll choose to join one of five Fish Teams. This year’s teams are Emperor Angelfish, Tiger Rockfish, Spotted Eagle Ray, Clownfish, and Hammerhead Shark. Read more about Fish Teams here and then select your favorite team during registration! Friends, families, co-workers, or dive buddies can also team up to participate together by forming a Fish Shoal. You don't have to be on the same Fish Team as your "shoal-mates" and you can read more about Fish Shoals here.
Registration packages start at $35. The first 100 participants to register will be entered to win some REEF swag! Registration rates increase after April 30, so be sure to sign up early to take advantage of the discount. All participants receive a limited edition 2023 long-sleeved shirt, downloadable race bib to personalize, a waterproof sticker set featuring the 2023 Fish Teams, plus the satisfaction of doing something meaningful for yourself, others, and the ocean!
