Red Carpet Ceremony for the Male Elite Runners

2020 The Year of the Sugar Run Elite 5K (Male Category)

14th Annual Sugar Run 5K


The first Sugar Run held in 2006 had 37 participants and raised $2,500.

Now, 14 years later, the Sugar Run has evolved with the help of faithful supporters like you! Over the years, we have maintained the feel of a family atmosphere by hosting a smaller sized event.

Two years ago we added a new division, the Elite Run, which showcases a top echelon of runners from around the country and allows for athletes to compete with others in their unique category.

The Sugar Run began 14 years ago to benefit JDRF's Fund a Cure where all money donated is used for diabetes mellitus research. In 2019, we had 277 participants and have donated over $250,000.00. Please join our family and commitment towards a world without type one diabetes #sugarrun5k

What is Juvenile Diabetes type 1?

Type 1 Diabetes Facts. ... Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that occurs when a person's pancreas stops producing insulin, the hormone that controls blood-sugar levels. T1D develops when the insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells are mistakenly destroyed by the body's immune system.
