The SMIRFS have laid claim to one of the most beautiful areas in the city ‐ Elinor Klapp‐Phipps Park, 670 acres of protected land along the bank and in the watershed area of Lake Jackson.  The trails are magnificent and home to many GWTC races (Pot Luck Bash for example) and several high school cross country meets.  Experienced and knowledgeable coaches will provide instruction and supervision during the workouts.  Tom Brown Park is the Tallahassee location for outdoor activity.  There are paved trails, like Goose Pond and unpaved trails like Lake Heritage Trail Park.  It is a great way to learn to love running.
