Join the Florida Track Club for our annual Tom Walker Memorial Half-Marathon and 5K on 11.11.17! Run on the beautiful Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail, this is an out and back course that starts at the beginning of the Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail and heads east along the trail to the turn around point just before the County Road 234 crossing at the Rouchelle Parking Area. The trail is a wide paved path with plenty of shade. The course is mostly flat with some gradual hills in the first and last mile and a short hilly section between miles 2 -3 and 11 - 12.
Free kids fun run during the half-marathon and family friendly activites for spectators of all ages!
Tom Walker was a previous President of the Florida Track Club who passed away from cardiac arrest on a run. This race is run every year in his honor and in memory of his service to the Gainesville Running Community.
