Alafia River State Park

Date: Sunday April 27, 2014


This will be a fun and challenging course with stream crossings, small hills, and some off-trail running. The 10 mile course is not a double loop of the 5 mile. The 5 mile course is a fun course and it is fairly straight forward. The extra 5 miles of the 10 mile course goes into sections of the park that are closed. It is a good thing the course will be well marked because you might not find your way back otherwise. The 10 mile course is a very interesting course without many races like it in the area. This race does not use trails from either the X-Country or FL Challenge.
