This 5K run and 1-mile Run/Walk takes place at Boyd Hill Nature Preserve, a 245 acre oasis of native Florida fauna. This family event is part of the annual Art Arbor Festival, a fund raiser for the Friends of Boyd Hill Nature Preserve, Inc. The Friends are a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide volunteer and financial support, to encourage community involvement, and to advocate for the protection of the preserve and conservation of natural resources for present and future generations.
The course is on existing shell and grass trails along the shores of beautiful Lake Maggiore, winding through
hardwood hammocks, pine flatwoods, and sand pine scrub.
