For the last 6 years 2000+ runners have fill the streets of the historic town of Mount Dora. This small town of 13,000 is filled with tree lined vistas of waterfront neighborhoods and lake-hugging roadways. Catch the rising sun through the gracefully swaying Spanish moss and watch the breeze dapple the lake’s surface with flashes of sunlight. The gentle rolling hills give this course a uniqueness of its own.

    A great race weekend, especially if you want to do both the 5k and the Half. Two races, two shirts and two medals for one price...awesome! Great job!

    Beautiful, yet challenging course with hills, cheering crowds and scenery. Even the police cheer you at the intersections!!
