About the Lakeland Magic 5K 

The Lakeland Magic 5K is a great way to tip off the season and Magic invite fans to experience this unique opportunity with family, friends or co-workers. Not only is it a great way to stay active, but participants will cross the finish line on the Lakeland Magic court at the RP Funding Center!

Lakeland Magic 5K participants will run/walk alongside with Lakeland Magic mascot, Swish.  The city approved course will take runners on through several blocks neighboring the Center and then back to the RP Funding Center for a Lakeland Magic center court finish.

Each 5k runner will receive an official Lakeland Magic 5K medal and inaugural t-shirt.  All kids 18 & under will also receive a Magic branded youth basketball.  The timed 5K will be facilitated in partnership with FITniche Lakeland.

All participants will receive a ticket to Lakeland Magic home opener on Saturday, November 10 to celebrate their accomplishment with a fun night of NBA basketball.
