Let’s get physical! We’re running (or walking) our way back to the vibrant and dynamic 1980s for AIDS Walk Orlando: Retro Run. Lace up your sneakers and roller skates, dust off your leg warmers, and let’s have some fun! Let’s stride together to raise awareness, funds, and support for HIV prevention and treatment, and honor those who are no longer here to fight the good fight with us. It’ll be GNARLY!
This fun run supports Hope & Help, an organization that has been fighting the HIV epidemic in Orlando since 1988. Whether you’re a solo runner or part of a team, you’re a winner for fighting against HIV stigma, and, for that, you’ll get a medal that’s pretty rad.
Individual runners and teams can sign up to fundraise for the event. We will have awards for the Top 3 race finishers, as well as awards for the team and individual who raises the most money.
Get your team together, grab your hairspray, and let’s take it way back to the 80s! Thank you for supporting the fight against HIV!

In order to ensure safety of all runners, roller skates and in-line skates are prohibited from the race course. It is VERY important for you to stay alert throughout the race, stay inside cones and obey all race signage. Jogging strollers are permitted but must start in the back.
Strollers are allowed. Nurturing future generations of runners/walkers is a priority as is demonstrating healthy lifestyles to our children. We do ask those registrants participating with a stroller to line up after the runners & walkers at the start line. Please listen for directions on where to line up on the day of the race. Only paid registrants of the 5K Fun Run/Walk will receive a finisher medal. If you would like your child to receive a medal, please register for them to participate in the Run/Walk.
