About This Activity

Runners and walkers will have a chance to experience what may be Florida’s most challenging and picturesque 5K course on Saturday, April 30th, by competing in the 2016 Carillon Classic 5K Run & Walk on the grounds of Bok Tower Gardens, situated high atop “Iron Mountain” in Lake Wales, Florida. This annual event is open to adults and students in grades 1 through 12 and will include team competition.

Everyone who registers by April 6th will be guaranteed a Carillon Classic dri-fit t-shirt. First, second and third place winners in standard age categories will receive a medal.

The Carillon Classic 5k will enable participants, spectators and their families to enjoy the splendor and beauty of Bok Tower Gardens, one of Florida’s most unique treasures. All participants and spectators are invited to enjoy the gardens and carillon music free-of-charge after the races.

It’s challenging, but who doesn’t like a good challenge? The 5K course gives runners and walkers an opportunity to experience the rolling hills, unique terrain (some sections of the course are gravel, rocks and mulch), colorful gardens/citrus groves and beautiful mountain vistas surrounding Bok Tower. Participants will be treated to the soothing sounds of carillon music as they make their way along the course situated on one of the highest points, elevation wise, on the Florida peninsula.

What participants said about last year’s race:

“One of the best courses I’ve ever run. Very challenging, but fun.”

“Tough course.  Thanks for the work out.”

“I have been hoping for a race at Bok Tower for years and it was awesome.”

*Please note: If you have already registered individually for the Citrus Series Race, but would like to be added to a team for the Carillon Classic, please contact Kelsey Hull at 813-967-1910.
