Now in its 26th year, the annual Real Florida 5K run is the only event of its kind in Florida that is run entirely within a state park. Where else might you run with a bear or try to outpace deer and wild turkeys!  Back by popular demand we will host the 10K run in the park. Both races follow natural double and single tracks that wind through some of the most beautiful habitats in Central Florida.
Wekiva Wildlife Trust CSO All proceeds from the event go to support the work of the Wekiva Wilderness Trust, the not-for-profit volunteer organization that helps support the environmental and educational work of the park. Our two main projects this year are to relocate and expand our nature center and to build an environmental open-air classroom that can be used by all the schools in the area.
