LARGO – Registration is open for the second annual Eagle Lake Classic 5K Run and Walk on Sunday, March 10, 9 a.m., at Eagle Lake Park, 1800 Keene Road.
“What differentiates the Eagle Lake Classic from other 5K runs and walks in the area, is that the course is a mostly paved trail through this beautiful scenic park in mid-Pinellas County,” said Polly Kraus, race director. “We invite the entire community to participate in this family-friendly event.”
The event is chip-timed for runners concerned with their time, but Kraus encourages everyone to come and try walking the course.
“We originally started this event to promote healthy living and we urge families and folks of all ages to come out and participate,” she stated.
The first 500 registered runners will receive a T-shirt. First, second and third-place awards will be given out in each age group. Everyone is invited to a post-race breakfast.
The cost is $25 for adults and $20 ages 18 and younger. Limited registration will be available for $30 on day of the race beginning at 8 a.m. at Eagle Lake Park.
