Michele Hill Raider Run: Welcome

2018 Raider Run Logo


The 12th Annual Michele Hill Raider Run and Community Family Celebration will be April 07, 2018, 7:30 AM at Navarre Youth Sports Association, in Navarre, Florida.  DJ Cool Ice Water will provide the finish line music.  Soul Station will provide live music on the race route. Jones and Company out of Destin Florida will perform a free concert after the race.  Creative Catering by Mark Whittlesay will be serving the best Post Race Meal in the Area. As always there will be many prizes to raffle at no additional charge to the race participants. Prizes include a weekend getaway to Golden Nugget Casino Hotel in Biloxi.  

The proceeds from the Michele Hill Raider Run are used to award $1000.00 scholarships to High School Seniors on race day from Escambia, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Walton and Bay County Florida, and Baldwin and Escambia County Alabama. We awarded $ 46,000.00 in Scholarships to High School Seniors in 2017.    

In our first 11 races, we have had over 3200 participants from 22 different states, 50 different Florida cities, and the Metropolitan of France. With your help over the last 11 years the Raider Run has raised approximately $181,000.00 with all proceeds supporting education.  

The Scholarship Application deadline for Northwest Florida and South Alabama was Friday March 23, 2018.
