Distances: 10 Miles and 5K (3.1 miles) Run

Courses: Both course begin at the base of the Citrus Tower with runners down Grand Hwy to Pitt Street. The 5K runners turnaround on Pitt Street near Clermont Middle School, while the 10 milers continue on to East Avenue and the South Lake Trail.  The 10 milers then follow a flat and fast, out & back course on the South Lake Trail before returning to Grand Hwy.  Both courses finish with a challenging half mile climb up Grand Highway to the top of Citrus Tower Hill and the finish line in front of the Citrus Tower.

Optional Citrus Tower Stair Climb: Runners in both the 5K and 10 Mile races have the option of signing up for a challenging climb up the stairs to the top observation deck of the Citrus Tower.  A limited number of stair climb slots are available. The stair climb is not available as a standalone event and must be completed with the run. Please keep in mind this is a very challenging 19 story stair climb.

Runners who register for the stair climb will have a special bib and will be directed to run through the run finish line where your time will be recorded for the finish of the run. You will then quickly follow the designated path to the stairs inside the Citrus Tower lobby. Once you reach the top your time will be recorded and you will receive a special, super cool Citrus Tower Stair Climb medallion. After you enjoy the awesome view you can take the elevator down to the finish line festivities.

Maps: Preliminary Map.  

Awards: Special commemorative awards to the top three overall, top masters, and top three in each age division for both the 10 Miler and 5K.  Special wards will also be presented to the the top three overall finishers, male and female, in the stair climb (based on cumulative time).
