Walker Friendly Events

Keeping Central Florida Fit is our mission. Walkers are encouraged to participate in all Track Shack races. 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  16 minutes per mile is set. 

Course Cut Off Times

We are committed to providing opportunities for all people to participate in our events, regardless of speed. However, we must institute course time limits in order to adhere to municipality requirements.
You must maintain at least a 16 minute per mile pace or race officials will ask you to move to the sidewalk to re-open the roadways.

Stroller Policy

Safety for all participants is our first priority and we are happy to permit strollers for a fun family outing. With thousands of runners and walkers sharing the road, this event is not a place for speed with a stroller. The policy below will help keep our youngest and oldest participants safe and having fun.

• Stroller/jogger operators start behind designated stroller signage.
• Stroller/jogger operators may walk/jog no faster than 15 minute per mile, a safe operating speed. If your speed goes faster than 15 minutes per mile pace, you may be disqualified.
• Stroller/jogger operators must yield the right of way to runners. Stroller/Joggers can tip easily and cannot turn quickly. Please do not weave through packs of runners.
