The Merrill Lynch Bull Run 5K is back and better than ever with a 5K run/walk on Saturday, Oct.19, 2019. This year, participants will be challenged to “Beat the Bull.” Whether they plan to walk, run, stroll or stampede, anyone who beats the bull across the finish line will get a special award!

The picturesque course features parts of scenic Stuart beginning and ending at the Merrill Lynch building at 2301 SE Monterey Road, Stuart, FL. Proceeds will once again provide holiday meals to thousands of families in need through United Way of Martin County's Holiday Project.
