Event Details

NEW for 2024 – 5k course that hits a few different trails than the longer races! (limited to 50 runners)

Both courses are challenging! With rolling hills that twist and turn through an old abandon phosphate mine area. You will run down sand & dirt trails that have been crafted over the years to become the awesome Carter rd Moutain bike trails! We love to run these wild and fun trails and want to bring a race to other runners to enjoy! This is a great run to challenge yourself! 👍
Some areas will challenge even the best runners to break 10min pace. It’s a very fun course while also being very tough in the same breath. This is not an easy course!!!!!
I must stress…this is about as hard as it gets in Florida!

Limited to 150 runners for the 10/30/50k & 50 runners for 5k
Awards: Top 3 Overall M/F & 1st masters M/F
Everyone finisher will receive socks, finisher sticker & award

This will be the Funest 50k you will run, walk or crawl in Florida! (refer to definition of Funest in photos)

Again…This is a FUN but TOUGH course! You should carry a charged phone with you in case of injuries or you have a hard time following a clearly marked path with over 600 markers!

**$10 of each registration goes back to Polk Co Parks & Rec to help maintain the park!
