Winter Park Sunday Running Group

 

 

The Winter Park Sunday Running Group has been a source of pleasant running experiences and friendships for hundreds of runners over 40 years. We encourage and welcome runners of all ages and speeds to join us on the course which offers exceptional scenery throughout Winter Park. The most popular distances range from five to ten miles, but the course easily accommodates shorter loops of three or four miles. It is our policy to ensure that people new to the group are warmly welcomed and that they do not get lost on the course.

 

Date : Sundays, April 1,8,15,22,29, 2018 at  7 a.m – Weekly on the same day

Event location: Park Avenue & Welbourne Avenue – Winter Park, FL 32789 United States
