Carillon Classic 5K Run & Walk
Saturday, April 29, 2017
Runners and walkers will be able to experience what may be Florida’s most challenging and picturesque 5K course on Saturday, April 29 by competing in the Carillon Classic 5K Run & Walk on the grounds of historic Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales, Florida.
The Carillon Classic 5K Run & Walk features what many consider Florida’s most challenging 5K course, since it requires runners and walkers to cope with elevation changes as well as a variety of terrains, including paved roads and gravel and mulch trails. As they compete high atop “Iron Mountain,” one of the highest points on the Florida peninsula, runners are also exposed to soothing music from the famed Bok Tower carillon as well as beautiful gardens, citrus groves and mountain vistas.
Cost: The nonrefundable registration fee for runners and walkers is $25 for adults and $15 for students.

Registration begins at 6:30 a.m. on race day, with competition starting at 7:30 a.m. sharp, rain or shine.
