2022 Recap

It was obvious participants in the 2022 SimplyIOA Corporate 5k presented by Key HR were glad to be back to some much-needed togetherness.  On Thursday, April 21st in downtown Orlando a collective cheer could be heard from 7,300 athletes representing 336 local corporations and non-profits, many who’ve spent the last two years working apart.  At last, we could run and walk together and provide food assistance for local families, friends, and co-workers. Together participants contributed almost 115,000 to Second Harvest Food Bank! Read more >>

2016 Recap: Start of Something Big

While last night’s IOA Corporate 5k seemed like a big-time race in downtown, it didn’t start out that way. In 1995, there were about 2000 runners and walkers which was considered a big local race at the time. It’s great that so many companies have continued to participate since that first year.  IOA is one company that comes to mind.  

Fast forward to the 22nd IOA Corporate 5k, a picture-perfect night at Lake Eola where 700 companies gathered in the heart of the city celebrating running, walking, camaraderie at work and community caring.  It’s thrilling to see the corporate community respond by in contributing 24,000+ meals to Second Harvest Food Bank and the Christian Service Center. Read More >>

Pride and confidence was the theme at last night's IOA Corporate 5k as 16,400 runners and walkers took over downtown Orlando to celebrate healthy living with co-workers, friends and family.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer's participation was a visible sign of his confidence that downtown Orlando is a safe place to be and that we should celebrate our quality of life with the people we live and work with.

Evan Dehart, of WCCI ran a strong race to win as the Overall Men's Champion with a time of: 15:46
Kristen Tenaglia with New Balance ran 17:43 to claim victory as the Overall Female Champion.
