Join Us for The Father's Day 5k Run at Blanchard Park

The Father's Day 5k, a medal-awarding race designed to be affordable for all.  Join us on SUNDAY June 16 on the banks of the Little Econ River at Blanchard Park for a Sunday morning run designed to celebrate family and expand the running community of Central Florida.  

About Us

Deliz Running was founded with the express purpose of returning 5k racing to its affordable roots.  We strongly believe a 5k race should be accessible to all and should serve as an introduction to competitive running and a training ground for those who want to make running part of their lifestyle.  A quality course, with performance awards, at the most affordable price we can manage.       

The Race Course

The race course follows the Little Econ River along the Greenway Trail.  The race begins in Blanchard Park near Pavillion 2 and heads west out of the park for 1.55 miles to the turn-around point, before heading back to the starting line.  The 3.1 mile course is tree lined with plenty of shady spots all along the Little Econ river bank.   The race course is mostly flat and fully paved with only a couple of slight rises, with the wooden Horseshoe Bridge providing a brief change of running surface. 

Race Timing

Race timing will be kept through manual time-keeping.  Race results will be available right after the race.

Race Packets and Bibs

Race bibs and swag bags will be available at the check-in table on race day.  Look for the check-in table at Blanchard Park's Pavilion 2 beginning at 7:30am.
