CLERMONT, FL- (January 14, 2022) Start 2022 with an almost guaranteed 5k personal best at AdventHealth’s Florida’s Fastest 5k race presented by Kroger on Saturday, January 22rd. This point-to-point USATF certified distance course at Lake Louisa State Park provides participants with a smooth paved route with only one turn and an 80-foot net elevation loss from start to finishing – meaning runners/walkers have their best chance to hit their personal best on this “fast” course. Last year, over 50% of participants had a PR (personal best).You don’t need to be fast to participate. but the net loss in elevation from start to finish will make you faster.
A cash prize will be awarded to any male or female who breaks the current 5k course record (male 13:54 and female 19:22).
