About this Event

The City of Winter Park and Track Shack's Run for the Trees 5k run/walk is a unique point to point event. The last mile is on the tree-canopied, wilderness dirt road of Genius Drive. This privately owned glimpse of old Florida is opened to the public only once a year, for this event. All finishers receive a young tree! Event capacity is set at 1,800.

• Finisher's receive a tree sapling
• Commemorative T-shirt
• Cupless race

Sponsor Message

Partnering with Track Shack and the City of Winter Park for the Run for the Trees 5k is a natural fit for the Center for Health & Wellbeing. What the run represents for Winter Park and the surrounding area – the pursuit of health and wellbeing, a conscious focus on the environment, community, family and a long-lasting legacy  -- are the very aims of our new Center. Even better, runners will glean inspiration for a successful race from the Center’s iconic architecture as they begin the 5k on the Center’s East Side.
