Come join us at the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park for a 10K or 5K Trail Run. Enjoy the beautiful surroundings and wildlife of the park. The course is on the Power Line Trail. It is a smooth mixed surface trail of mostly dirt and gravel. The 5K course and park are dog friendly so bring your furry friend if they like to run with you. Unfortunately, the 10K course goes into Carlton Reserve and that area is not dog friendly. The event will be chip timed by Beach Bum Timing. All donations and partial proceeds will go to the North Port Track Team. There will be automatic discounts for all Runsignup club members (ie. Zoomers, Sarasota Storm..etc) If your club is not on runsignup check with your club leadership or info@beachbumtiming for a discount code.
Start times: The 10K will start at 7:30 am and the 5K will start at 7:40 am. Due to COVID and based on number of registered runners we may be required to start in waves. You will be chip timed so there are no worries about starting in a later wave.
