Runners and walkers in this year's Corporate 5k will make history by participating in the largest road race ever held in Orlando city limits!
A few of us from Track Shack (and a running buddy from FreshPoint) ran the newly designed route starting at 7:15 p.m. on a Thursday night. Here's a preview of what to expect.
Heading east on Central you'll experience very little of downtown Orlando's famous brick streets for about a half mile. Think of this route as a rectangle that surrounds classic downtown neighborhoods and passes right by Carl Langford and Rose Arden parks. Along the way you'll be refreshed by hundreds of enthusiastic volunteers serving at two water stops and energized by a DJ and live music, including a mariachi band that welcomes you back to Lake Eola.
Nice wide roads and straight stretches lead you across the finish line and into the Office Party of the Year! Mich Ultra will be flowing and this is the time to celebrate your accomplishment with thousands of other fitness enthusiasts!
