The Meridian Club has given more than $300,000 to 100+ local high school students as they pursue higher education.
Runners and walkers of all ages and abilities love this event which is Winter Park’s first and oldest race. The first race was held on Park Avenue in June of 1977 and is still a local favorite. The Winter Park Road Race is the Grand Finale of the prestigious, six race Track Shack Running Series.
“This race is so popular because of the scenic, neighborhood course and ideal setting on Park Avenue, “ says Hughes. “It’s also a great family entertainment value considering there’s a race distance that everyone in the family can participate in—10k 2 Mile and kids’ distances.”
In keeping with the beloved and maybe unofficial Winter Park peacock mascot all participants receive a beautifully designed t-shirt, souvenir glass, refreshments and also interactive health screenings provided by Florida Hospital.
