Thanks, Bradenton, for another great De Soto Grand Parade 5K!
Bradenton Runners Club would like to thank all the runners, volunteers and sponsors who joined us on Saturday, April 30th, for the new and improved De Soto Grand Parade 5K – the race to kick of the De Soto Heritage Festival Grand Parade. We hope you enjoyed the race and will come back next year! We are always working to improve our races and BRC has bigger and better plans for the 2017 De Soto Grand Parade 5K!
The 2017 race will include a full start-to-finish, chip-timed course but will extend further down Manatee Ave W. so you’ll be able to see even more of the Hernando de Soto Historical Society‘s Heritage Festival Grand Parade. Additionally, in 2017, the race after party will be even better and you’ll be able to watch the parade from the starting area! More surprises to come, so stay tuned.
