Royal Run 5k

The Phil Royal Legacy serves to nurture the community by promoting Phil’s vision of treating everyone with dignity and respect, building relationships with our kids, elders, and everyone in between. Our goal is to provide support to various charities and programs that show involvement in, or commitment to, bettering our community.

The Royal Run is right around the corner, and we are so excited that this is our 7th year! Previously this was the Beat the Sheriff 5K, started by Sheriff Jeff Dawsy in 1997. Sheriff Dawsy agreed to pass the torch to the Phil Royal Legacy to ensure the race would continue.

The date of this year’s race is September 16th, 2023. The 5K and 1 Mile Walk begins at Citrus High School promptly at 7:30 am, with a free kids’ fun run beginning at approximately 8:15 and post-race activities immediately following the 5K and 1 Mile Walk. This race is only successful through the support of our community and businesses such as yours. I am asking you to please consider being a sponsor for this year’s race. Proceeds of the race will provide scholarships to the 5th Grade Safety Patrol trip to Washington D.C., Royal Acts of Kindness in our Middle Schools, efficient and non-evasive heart screenings to student athletes through our partnership with Who We Play For, and our All Kids Bike® program in kindergarten physical education classes, which helps to provide bike helmets for our Citrus County Public and Private Schools.

We have great expectations for this year’s event and need your support. I welcome you to join us in participating or just come by and say hello. Attached for your consideration are this year’s sponsorship packages and sponsorship opportunities.

Thank you so much for your support!
