Fitness enthusiasts might spot tiny, shy Key deer during the 14th annual No Name Race, a 5k walk and run set to begin at 8 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 11, in the pristine Lower Keys.

The 3.1-mile race, which benefits the Domestic Abuse Shelter of the Florida Keys, is based at the Old Wooden Bridge Guest Cottages & Marina, located on No Name Road at the No Name Key Bridge.

Walkers and runners are to start and end at the marina, twice traversing the bridge, a concrete span that replaced a wooden bridge decades ago. The area is home to the National Key Deer Refuge, established in 1957 to protect and preserve the diminutive deer and other Keys wildlife.

Medals await top male and female racers in age groups ranging from 9 and under to 70 and older. A post-race celebration with refreshments and prizes is planned.

Cost to enter is $25 per person for adults. Runners under age 15 can register for $10 per person.

Participants can register and pick up their race packets 4-6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 10, at Centennial Bank, 200 Wilder Road on Big Pine Key. Saturday's final registration is to begin at 6:30 a.m. at the Old Wooden Bridge property.

Registration forms also are available on the Domestic Abuse Shelter's website at

The race is a fundraiser for the shelter, a nonprofit organization that provides comprehensive services for individuals and families experiencing domestic and sexual abuse.
