The Carillon Classic 5K Run & Walk features what many consider Florida’s most challenging 5K course, since it requires runners and walkers to cope with elevation changes as well as a variety of terrain, including paved roads and gravel and mulch trails. As they compete high atop “Iron Mountain,” one of the highest points on the Florida peninsula, runners are also exposed to soothing music from the famed Bok Tower carillon as well as beautiful gardens, citrus groves and mountain vistas. The event is open to adults and students in grades 1-12 and will feature team competition for the first time this year. All proceeds will benefit the Florida Public Relations Association’s Dick Pope/Polk County Chapter’s educational and professional endeavors, and the George W. Harris, Jr. Runaway and Youth Crisis Shelter.
