The unique 5K course traverses three barrier islands and takes participants through a shady maritime hammock ecosystem on a hard-packed shell. No part of the course requires running through beach sand. The course ends with a dramatic finish at the beach pavilion, where refreshments will be served and awards are presented. Stick around after the race for a dip in the Gulf! The race is open to competitive runners, walkers and first-time race participants. Proceeds from the race benefit the Friends of Lovers Key, Inc. a volunteer non-profit group that is raising money for a Visitor Education Center to be built at Lovers Key State Park.
