The event will begin at 12:30 PM.
We will release "mini waves" every few minutes until everyone has crossed the start line. For everyone's safety, we ask faster runners to line up closer to the front of the start corral, then followed by run/walkers, walkers, and those with strollers toward the back.
Packet pick up will be at the run. Gates open and check-in begins at 11:30 AM.
We will be using the back entrance at 17123 Whirley Rd, Lutz, 33558. (From Dale Mabry, head West on Van Dyke about 1 mile and turn South onto Whirley Road. The park entrance is about 1/2 mile down on the left) Drive into the park until you see a large open field and pavilion on the left.
