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 Wetlands 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.
