Over 200 runners finished the first year event, a benefit for the Southern Scholarship Foundation, which since 1955 has enabled students in financial need to attend FSU, FAMU, UF, and FGCU by providing rent-free housing. Not entirely coincidentally, the president of the foundation is Mickey Moore, the runner-up in the Education For Life 5K. The race started and finished on FSU's Mike Long Track, touring the west side of campus on a mostly flat USATF certified course (FL06015DL). The same course was used earlier this year for the Special Olympics of Leon County 5K.
