We are very excited to bring you our second night event of 2020--the Stars Over Starkey 10k & 5k Runs at Starkey Wilderness Park!
Starkey Wilderness Park is an amazing Pasco County resource that is easily accessible to the greater Tampa Bay area via the Suncoast Parkway, I-75 and SR54--making it convenient for all to come and run with us through the woods.
The paved multi-use trail in Starkey feature some beautiful pine flatwoods, oak hammocks and wetland areas along the way and provides us with a (mostly) flat and fast out and back course for our event.

- Course: 5k out and back on the park's paved multi-use trail.
- Aid Stations: One at the short course turnaround (about 2.5k) that you will pass twice and at your far turnaround point (5k)--both with sports drink and water. Unlike many road runs, there will not be an aid station every mile.
