Join us for the 3rd Annual Phil Royal Legacy Foundation "Royal Run 5K" on Saturday, September 14, 2019. Proceeds of the race go to benefit the Phil Royal Legacy. Previously the Beat the Sheriff 5k, started by Sheriff Jeff Dawsy in 1997. Following the unfortunate passing of Sheriff Candidate Phil Royal, Sheriff Dawsy agreed to pass the torch to the Legacy Foundation to insure this event would continue.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The race venue has moved to the Crystal River Mall. Downtown Inverness will be closed off for the 100 year celebration, so we decided to move it back to the original spot where it all started. The very first Beat the Sheriff 5K took place at the Crystal River Mall, organized by a young deputy named Phil Royal. As a School Resource Officer, Phil wanted to get his at risk youth involved in constructive and beneficial activities. As an avid runner, Phil decided to put on a race and give every kid who could beat him a reward. The Beat the Sheriff was born and has continued to grow ever since. Now the Roayl Run 5K, it seems fitting to bring it back to where Phil started it all. We look forward to seeing everyone in Crystal River this year and running the original course.
