The "Run For The Cookies" 5K is a benefit for the Girl Scout Council of the Florida Panhandle. Since 1993 the event has been directed by Jeanne O'Kon and Tom Perkins. Entrants in the 5K each get a box of Girl Scout cookies, and the age group awards are boxes of Girl Scout cookies. Weather for the 2010 event was cold and clear. 433 runners finished the 5K, somewhat lower than the 2009 tally of 550 finishers.
