Phil Brown's 2nd

PHEEL GOOD 5k PLUS...VIRTUAL 5k & 1-Mile Sugar run!​​​

Your Business Tagline



     Phil Brown's PHEEL GOOD 5k is a unique 5k that celebrates the life and honors the memory 

of local runner Phil Brown, who was killed while riding his motorcycle to work on the morning of March 1, 2017.

     Starting and ending in front of Lakeland's FITniche running store, the course will follow the route that Phil and his wife, Mary Marcia, enjoyed running together at annual 'Faster with FITniche' races in past years. Runners and walkers from near and far are encouraged to lace up and log miles in Phil's honor during this special weekend. Those who live in different states or many miles away, can still participate by registering for the Virtual Run (we will mail your medal & shirt)!

     And N-E-W for 2018...introducing the 1-Mile Sugar Run! You know you can run a mile, but can you run a mile at your normal pace when carrying a 5-lb bag of sugar?!!?! All Sugar Run participants receive a custom drawstring bag! Register for the 1-Mile Sugar Run AND the 5k, and receive the shirt AND the bag! We encourage EVERYONE to take on the challenge by running 4.1 miles when you register for both the 5k AND the 1-Mile Sugar Run (both events start and end in front of FITniche). How sweet it is!

     All proceeds will benefit the PHEEL GOOD Foundation, a non-profit organization founded in Phil's honor that brings community together to enjoy events that make participants "pheel" good -- physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.
