About This Activity

In conjunction with The Foot Landing and the Punta Gorda Historical Mural Society, the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce is hosting an inaugural mural run/walk (approximately 4.1 miles in length), which will incorporate a stop at a large percentage of our incredible murals around the city. Participants will pick up souvenir beads at each mural stop. Prizes will be awarded to those runners and walkers who finish first AND with the most beads!*Please note that this is an untimed event.

Course

The course will be approximately 4.1 miles in length. Participants will visit the majority of Punta Gorda's historic murals. This is a "timeless" event and a wonderful opportunity to get to know the history of Punta Gorda through these beautiful works of art.

Benefit

Proceeds will benefit the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce and the Punta Gorda Historic Mural Society. The Mural Society helps preserve, through historic murals, the people, places and events that have given Punta Gorda it's unique character.

Participant Perks
