- Description: This will be a great opportunity to experience Florida trail running at its finest. It is suited for experienced trail runners and novices.
While not a course for a PR, it will go down in your log book as a special run. The main event is a 13.1 mile half marathon utilizing both sides of the park: the wide nature trails on the south side and the single lane mountain bike trails on the north side.
For those in training for a race or just off one, or for those that may want to experience a little less nature we have a 2 person half marathon relay, over the same course. And for those that feel that 3.1 miles is just the right amount of nature we offer a 5K Fun Run along the wide nature trails on the south side of the park.
If you are looking for a flat, perfectly marked course with crowds, plenty of hoopla, thousands of other runners and a big mouse, you should consider running at Disney World. If however you want to experience a beautiful and challenging trail with only a couple hundred fellow dirt enthusiasts, have the chance to win an unique award and more raffle prizes than you could shake a root at, sign up for the RRRTR.
The RRRTR is sanctioned by the Fort Myers Track Club. Proceeds from this event help support the educational programs of Riverwatch (Caloosahatchee River Citizens Association,) Audubon of Southwest Florida, and CREW Land and Water Trust, and trail maintenance by the Mudcutters Bicycle Club
