scrub-jay-raceScrub-jay 5/10K race
Saturday February 11, 2017 – 6:30am to 11:00am
Registration includes park entrance fee

Since its inception in 2000 the OSSP Scrub-jay Race has gone from strength to strength, with an ever-increasing number of participants each year. From little ones in strollers – hopefully runners of the future, through the young and middle years, to more mature folks!

And all with different ability and targets; some enjoy a leisurely stroll, others a brisk walk, but the majority – the dedicated – take the OSSP Scrub-jay Race very seriously, especially as it is a Manasota Track Club recognized event and therefore registered members qualify for points from this race.

The race is held completely within park confines, with frequent Water Stations and Guides along the course. Mostly on sandy and grass tracks through the park’s scrubby flatlands, although the start and finish are on paved roads and the Legacy Trail.

The race features; Chip Timing, nutritious post race Refreshments, free printed Tech-tee Shirts, Door prizes and Awards – six deep awards in all groups: Overall, Master, Grand Master, Senior Grand Master, and Veteran Grand Master.
