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.
The 5K Run/Walk is a competitive event with bib-integrated timing tag. Awards will be presented to the top male and female overall and to the top 3 male and female finishers in each of the following age groups: 14 and under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60 & up.
