Runners will converge on Lake Apopka this Saturday
From the St. John’s River Water Management District
Visitors to the SJRWMD’s Lake Apopka North Shore should expect additional traffic this coming weekend. The property has grown in popularity for nature-based recreation. However, this weekend expect marathon runners to be in abundance rather than wildlife.
WHAT: 13th Annual Orlando Xtreme Half Marathon and 5K
WHEN: Feb. 18 from 6 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
On February 18th, the district-owned property is part of the mapped run for a half marathon and 5K. Runners will follow trails within the 20,000-acre Lake Apopka North Shore, which will remain open to the general public during the race.
