You’re invited to join in the 4th Annual REEF Fish Out of Water Virtual 5K! It’s a great way to get out and get active in your local community while making your miles count. From June 5-11, we’re encouraging the REEF community and ocean enthusiasts everywhere to get moving in the name of conservation. You can choose to run, walk, hike, bike, or even swim, completing the 5K (3.1 miles) distance in one day or breaking into smaller sections over the week.

When you register for the Fish Out of Water Virtual 5K, you will join one of five Fish Teams. Check out our Fish Teams page to see which team is for you! 


Thank you 2023 5K participants for another successful event! Stay tuned for details on our 2024 Fish Out of Water Virtual 5K!

All participants will receive a limited-edition race shirt, bib, and custom fish team vinyl stickers. We encourage friends, family, co-workers, and dive buddies to form a Fish Shoal to share your race spirit.

The 2023 Fish Out of Water 5K coincides with World Oceans Day. This is a day dedicated to protecting and restoring our blue planet. Proceeds from your Fish Out of Water 5K registration will support the REEF Oceans for All Fund. Join in REEF's commitment to increasing inclusive programming in science, diving, and conservation. The Oceans for All Fund provides support for individuals who have had limited opportunities to learn about, experience, and explore the ocean through REEF's programs. By participating in the race, you're making a difference in the lives of individuals and the health of the oceans.

Make a difference with REEF – join us for the Fish Out of Water Virtual 5K! 

Shirt size inventory is limited for the 2023 event. Register today to ensure your shirt size is available. (05/25/23 - we are out of XXL shirts, sorry for the inconvenience!)
