5k Race Course:

The start of the race will begin in the church parking lot. Runners will exit the parking lot and cross Ortiz Ave. turning left and proceeding on the paved trail. The trail will curve right and provide shaded section before a straight away leading to a wooden bridge. After crossing the bridge, there will be a water station and then another straight away. A turn around point will be clearly marked with volunteers cheering you on along the way. We ask all runners to be courteous and stay to your right as those in the front will be returning on the same paved trail. Once returning to the church parking lot, you will make a quick left turn and finish through a chipped timed finish line shoot.

Note: All vehicle traffic will be stopped on Ortiz Ave. by Ft. Myers Police Department.
