COURSES
Both the Half Marathon and 5K are out and back courses along the new, beautiful, paved and shaded Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail. Water stops will be available throughout the course. The open course time limit is 3 ½ hours. Sunset is at 5:52 PM and the course will close with last light at 6:30 PM.

USATF certification pending for both distances.

The purpose of the USATF course certification program is to produce road race courses of accurately measured distances. For any road running performance to be accepted as a record or be nationally ranked, it must be run on a USATF-certified course. In addition, the certification program is very important to the average road racer, as well as those of exceptional speed. Most runners like to compare performances run on different courses, and such comparisons are difficult if course distances are not reliable. No one can truly establish a personal best if the course distance is not accurate.

AMENITIES
 Amenities will include: T-shirt, finisher's medal, and post-race meal of 1/4 BBQ chicken/sides/drink. Availability and size of shirts are only guaranteed to those who register by December 31, 2020. Entertainment will be provided by Possum Trot, Blue Grass and Old-Time Dance music - a local favorite.
