This is an out and back certified race course (FL09012EBM) with mile markers. It is on the Park’s main road which is both scenic and paved. The start and finish lines are near the main parking area approximately 1.5 miles from the Park’s entrance.

This is a family-friendly, running and walking event promoting a healthy lifestyle and the beauty of OʼLeno State Park. Some participants will be racing for prize money and awards, some to achieve a personal best, and some to complete their first running event. Whether you run fast, slow, or walk, come out and challenge yourself to Race the Tortoise. All levels of ability welcome.
