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!

Health and safety are our priority. Track Shack is taking every step to ensure the safety of runners.
