Run for the Trees 5k run/walk is a unique point to point event. The last mile is on the tree-canopied, wilderness dirt road of Genius Drive. This privately owned glimpse of old Florida is opened to the public only once a year, for this event. Shuttle buses will be provided to take the participants back to Showalter Field.
Funds raised from the event will support the Winter Park Tree Replacement Fund. The City of Winter Park has historically been known for the canopies of vintage trees that line its picturesque streets and neighborhoods. Unfortunately, almost one-third of the city’s tree canopy was either damaged or destroyed during the hurricanes of 2004. Tree replacement is also needed continually as trees reach the end of their natural life span.
