Highlights:This Boston Marathon qualifier and USATF certified course starts at the University of Florida and weaves through Gainesville's most popular running areas. The route takes you past the iconic 34th Street Wall where thousands of UF students and Gainesville residents have commemorated important events in their lives and in the community. You'll be challenged by the historic hills of 16th Avenue, and will enjoy Gainesville's beautiful Duck Pond and downtown areas. On the first half you'll also pass through Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, home to the 2006 National Championship Gators, and may see some 'real' gators sunning themselves on the shores of Lake Alice. After the half marathon course splits, the full participants continue toward Gainesville's Rails to Trails, Williston Road, 34th Street and winds again through parts of UF's campus and back to the start/finish area. A festive post-race party welcomes you to the finish line and you'll enjoy pizza, refreshments, entertainment and awards.
