Experience a One-of-a-Kind Marathon at the Watermelon 5K
Start your Independence Day the right way with a 5k! Join friends, family and neighbors for a morning celebration featuring ice cold watermelon and American pride.
Florida Hospital is happy to sponsor this 5k in support of our military veterans. Florida Hospital employs large numbers of veterans in all areas of the organization, from doctors and nurses to chaplains to senior executives. The discipline, dedication and leadership shown by our veteran employees are invaluable in carrying out Florida Hospital’s mission.
Keeping Central Florida Fit is our mission. Walkers are encouraged to participate in all Track Shack races. The City of Winter Park encourages runners and walkers in this 5k to complete 3.1 miles within one hour. Participants who do not maintain that pace will be directed to the sidewalk by race officials.
The event consists of a 5K around the city of Winter Park benefiting the Track Shack Foundation, a local, 501c(3) organization that promotes health and fitness with an emphasis on youth programs. The run begins at 7:00 a.m. and is immediately followed by a watermelon eating contest that starts at 8:00 a.m. We hope that you join us for the fun race!
At Pure Living Apartments in Heathrow, Florida, it is clear that we have it all, but we still feel obliged to inform you of all the events our community has scheduled. Please feel free to join in all of the fun at this event!
