Course

We are running through Lake Nona, a ground breaking 11-square mile community for healthy living, sports innovation and performance, technology and life sciences located in southeast Orlando.


Course Restrictions

Municipalities require that road ways are clear of participants and opened as soon as the race is complete. That is why a maximum pace of 15 minutes per mile is set. If the pace isn't maintained, race officials will ask you to move to the sidewalk to re-open the roadways.


Event Location

Lake Nona Town Center
6941 Lake Nona Blvd
Tavistock Lakes Blvd. & Lake Nona Blvd. Intersection 

Proceeds from the race will benefit the Tavistock Foundation. The Tavistock Foundation serves programs and organizations in the communities where it has significant business interests. The Foundation has been instrumental in the development of Lake Nona's emerging Medical City, with millions of dollars donated to creating this biomedical research and educational hub in Central Florida.

B-Tag Scoring

The B-Tag by ChronoTrack is the timing device used to score participants. The B-Tag is attached to the back of your runner bib. 

In order to receive an accurate time, please confirm your bib is:

  • Clearly visable on the FRONT of the torso.

  • Unaltered or modified. Do not fold or wrinkle or you risk breaking the timing chip.

  • Pinned in all four corners so the timing chip stays flat.

  • Not covered with jackets, water bottles, etc so as not to block the reading of the timing chip.
