Spring Lake Memorial Classic 2
May 23 @ 6:00 am - 12:00 pm$20 – $35
The Spring Lake Memorial Classic is a fun run and walk – or one of the toughest, most challenging foot races held in the State of Florida – you decide. The racecourse is located in scenic eastern Hernando County, Florida. But don’t let the majestic trees and peaceful setting fool you – these are some of the toughest hills in Florida!
All three courses take participants along roads draped with shade trees and over some very challenging hills!
Make sure that the sound of your pounding heart and deep breathing don’t distract you from observing the wonderful surroundings along the course. The area is home to a variety of native plants and wildlife such as majestic oaks, magnolias, hickory and cedar trees, red hawks, bald eagles, wild turkeys, pileated woodpeckers, bobcats, foxes, coyotes, and white-tail deer – just to name a few…
So while doing this run be sure to keep your head high, breathe deep, and keep your eyes peeled. It truly is a treat for the senses!
Proceeds from this event support individuals with intellectual & developmental disabilities.
