Florida > Orlando Xtreme Half Marathon, 10K & 5K
Orlando, FL • Saturday, February 8, 2014 • Course Map
Heading into its 10th annual running on Florida's race calendar in
2014, the Orlando Xtreme Half Marathon, 10K & 5K
takes runners on a scenic off-road trail course through the Orlando
Park, a 1,650-acre man-made park filled with lush forests of hardwood
hammock trees, marshes and lakes, as well as more than 20 miles of
roads and trails designed for hiking, biking and running, located just
outside the town of Christmas, Fla.
With a point-to-point course that starts inside the park's interior and
finishes near one of the entrance roads along its southern edge, the
race takes runners along single-track trails and berm roads through the
park, along a route that makes two laps around the park to complete
the 13.1 miles of the half marathon. Along the race route, runners can
expect to see a wide variety of regional wildlife and migratory
waterfowl, including blue-winged and green-winged teal, wood storks,
white ibis and black-crowned night herons, among many others.
One of Florida's newer and smaller running events, the race attracts
just a few hundred runners in all events combined each year. Runners
leave the starting line for the official start of all races at 7:30 AM,
and an awards ceremony will follow each race.
