Running of the Bulls 5K 2019
On February 24, 2019 The Arc Jacksonville held its 5th annual Running of the Bulls 5K at Intuition Ale Works. This event borrows its theme from the famous “Encierro,” or The Running of the Bulls, held each July in Pamplona, Spain.
Featuring the Jacksonville Roller Derby as bulls, runners were chased through the downtown Jacksonville 5K and 1K course. Beginning and ending at Intuition Ale Work runners were treated to an after-party featuring race awards, beer, live music, complimentary food/drink. This downtown event is a family-friendly fun run with a 1K option for walkers, leisure runners and kids.
Thank you to our sponsors and partners!

Founded in March 2006, Jacksonville Roller Derby (JRD) is Jacksonville’s first and only all female flat-track roller derby league. Comprised of over 70 skaters, JRD are dispersed among teams that compete on differing skill levels: the J-Villains, River City Rat Pack, New Jax City Rollers, Duval Derby Dames, First Coast Fatales and the Bold City Bombshells. Jacksonville Roller Derby is member owned-and-operated and is based on the concept “by the skaters, for the skaters”. All league members are volunteers who are dedicated to promoting an action-packed, full-contact sport that is both a thrill to play and non-stop entertainment for the spectator.
