Description

The annual LECOM 5K for Excellence consists of a 5K Run/Walk and a 1-Mile Walk. The event takes place at Greenbrook Adventure Park which offers a scenic, point-to-point course during the beautiful March weather of the Florida Westcoast. The course is on a paved and packed-shell trail, with a short section of soccer field grass. You will enjoy a scenic  nature route and be cheered on by our wonderful volunteers along the way. Water stations will be strategically placed to bring you hydration. The event also includes a post-race Health Fair with raffles for fun prizes.
