Sunset Celebration Run at Lovers Key State Park - Southwest Florida Run Series

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection's Florida Park Service is pleased to host the Real Florida Run Series in eight Southwest Florida state parks. The Real Florida Run Series provides residents and visitors an opportunity to exercise and enjoy Florida's natural beauty.

The Real Florida Run Series is open to all ages with medals to be presented to the first three male and the first three female finishers at the end of each race and in each age category. Adventurers who run five or more of the total of eight races will receive a special award.

      This is a State Park function not a Slacker function. I posted these so people would have some options of things to do.
