Sun State Sports would like to thank Champs Grill for sponsoring the race! Located at 6645 S. Florida Ave., Champs is a sports bar with great food at great prices! We would also like to thank the Lakeland Raiders for their contributions to Sun State Sports and the race.
From Lakeland, take S. Florida until it turns into SR-37, take left at W. Carter Road, park is on your right.
Sun State Sports presents a one of a kind 5k race in South Lakeland. Challenging hills and rough terrain make this cross country course something different than the usual. We are proud to announce that a portion of the proceeds from the race will be given to a local kids running group from Scott Lake Elementary! It will help towards getting them new running equipment (shoes, apparel, etc.). Have little ones and don't know what to do with them? There will be a playground literally feet from the finish line! They can be entertained by the swing, while you run the race! The age groups will be 10 and under, 11-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60 and older. There will be prizes for overall winner of the men's and women's division, as well as master's winner for the men and women. Every participant that preregisters is guaranteed a t-shirt. Race day registrants are not guaranteed a t-shirt and will be given on a first come, first serve basis. There will be plenty of prizes to win! Extreme caution is to be exercised when running this course!
