Course Information
The course will begin and conclude in close proximity to the sand volleyball courts, midway between the Dixie Lake parking area and RV campground. The course takes place on the equestrian trails on the park's south boundary. Runners will encounter gentle rolling grassy trails and groves of tall pines. Evidence of the park's former orange grove existence is present throughout. It is a spectacular and scenic route. The course has been wheeled several times to ensure the 5000 meter distance.
