Run for the Trees Jeannette Genius McKean Memorial 5k presented by Center for Health and Wellbeing

About this Event

The City of Winter Park and Track Shack's 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. All in person finishers receive a young tree!

A collaboration between the Winter Park Health Foundation and AdventHealth, the Center for Health & Wellbeing is an 80,000-square foot, state-of-the-art facility, open to the public, where the disciplines of wholeness, fitness, and medicine merge to empower healthy and active lifestyles. More than a building, the Center is a place for community and connection. 

“Partnering with Track Shack for the Run for the Trees 5k is a natural fit for the Center for Health & Wellbeing. What the run represents for Winter Park and the surrounding area – the pursuit of health and wellbeing, a conscious focus on the environment, community, family, and a long-lasting legacy -- are the very same aims of our community facility. We are excited to welcome race participants to the Center for Health & Wellbeing for a post-race celebration and to discover the many health and wellbeing opportunities we offer within,” says Winter Park Health Foundation President and CEO Patty Maddox.
