Join Project Gainesville on November 21st, 2015 for the 4th annual Paynes Prairie 5K through the Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park! BenefittingThe Friends of Paynes Prairie, this exclusive race celebrates the delicate ecological, historical and protected environments that are unique to North Florida!  Racers traverse through the park on a one-of-a-kind mixed trail that stretches alongside of Lake Wauburg and weaves through the savannahs on unmarked trails generally not open to the public.

Please join us on this short journey through the park while supporting your local nonprofits! Race entry fees include race registration on a stunning loop course, awesome t-shirts guaranteed to all pre-registered runners by local artist, chip timing, entry into the park, hydration station on course, refreshments after race, and participation into the finisher’s area celebration.


We are pleased to announce that our chip timing will be provided by Start2Finish Race Management!
