Inverness, FL

In 2023, to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of a great event, Whispering Pines will become a trail festival, two days, 4 separate events, something for everyone of all ages, all abilities, all speeds, walkers and runners. 

The course will follow a 5 mile trail loop beginning and ending at the Pavilion by Parking Lot B and the playground. There is parking and restrooms near the Pavilion and additional parking nearby. From the Pavilion, runners will take a short out-and-back that connects to the start of the loop. Participants will run and/or walk the loop as many times as they want during the 12 hours or 8 hours. The course will be marked with directional arrows at the turns and orange flagging ribbon. There are many trails in the park, so it is important to pay attention to the course markings. At the completion of each loop, participants return to the pavilion. An aid station will be set up at the Start/Finish line with a wide variety of hot and cold food and drinks. Due to COVID Safety Guidelines, volunteers will serve food, fill water bottles, etc. This event is ideal for all ages and all abilities of runners and walkers, as you choose how long or how far you want to go, and you get credit for whatever distance you complete. Runners can take a break at any time, leave the course, return and run some more, just let the race timer know what you are doing.
