Break the monotony of the road and join us for a morning of Cross Country-style running on the course used by Palmetto High School's XC team!  The course is a grassy double loop with a total of less than 300m of pavement.  Experienced 5k runners will enjoy the course and novices should not be scared away if they can handle the 5k distance.  It is a nice, open course with no massive hills or highly technical sections that only a mountain goat can navigate.  The coarse is well marked and volunteers direct traffic so it is almost impossible to get lost.  There will also be a 1mi Fun Run/Walk for those who would prefer not to do the full 5k or just want to go for a stroll while supporting a good cause.

5k runners are welcome to register as individuals or teams of 3 to 5 people.  There is no extra cost for teams and members are eligible for team and individual awards.  5k participants are also welcome to join family and friends for the Fun Run/Walk without registering for the second event.

The 1mi Fun Run/Walk will take place on the Cross Country course after the 5k is completed.  Official times will not be recorded for the Fun Run but the big race clock will be running for those who want to capture their own times.  5k participants do not need to register for the Fun Run if they want to join family and friends for the second race.

Strollers will not be permitted in either race, due to the irregular surfaces typical of all quality Cross Country-style courses.
