Run or walk through one of Florida's most beautiful state parks! The Race the Tortoise 5K winds through the dogwood tree-lined roads of O'Leno State Park in High Springs, Florida. This flat and fast tour through the dogwoods guarantees a beautiful shaded race that should be your target for a 2022 PR! Your registration includes state park admission for the day, excellent post-race food including a hot breakfast, and unique awards including a 1-day park pass "medal" for each finisher. Bring your friends and family and consider camping, hiking, mountain biking, and more at O'Leno State Park. All proceeds will be used to support projects and interpretive programs at O’Leno and River Rise Preserve State Parks.

For those folks wishing to support the Race the Tortoise 5K, but unable to make the March 5th event, we are offering an option to "Run Your Own Tortoise 5K". Register for this event by February 21st and receive the official Race the Tortoise 5K T-shirt and participant medal (including a 1 day park pass for future use), and visit O'Leno State Park any day of your choosing to go for a run on your own terms. Your registration receipt will serve as your park pass that day. Just show it to the Ranger Station and your package will be waiting for you there in your name.

For Day of Race registrants, Breakfast tickets for friends and family can be purchased online with your registration for $3 per person. Breakfast tickets will also be available on race day for $5 each. Cabins are also available for rent online with your registration, for Friday and/or Saturday night for $25/night plus tax. Bring the whole family and all of your friends! It'll be a great day to see all that O'Leno State Park has to offer.
