Event summary

<p>The X-Country is unlike any other run in Florida. It features rolling hills with sweeping views. You will feel like you have been transported to Kentucky on this course. The X-Country race takes place on wide grassy/dirt paths that are easy to run and easy on your body. Held at Alafia River State Park, these trails are spectacular, and we think you will love the course. So whether you pick the 5K, the 1/2 or the full Marathon, come race with us!</p>
