Beautiful routes along the Rail Trail raising funds for trail improvements and maintenance from the Friends of Volusia Trails 501(c)3.

Giving back to the trail system and those that have made it possible while promoting health, wellness and safety for athletes in our local community. This additional Half was brought on by the necessity caused by Hurricane Irma. Double the funds for the trail system are in need after catastrophic damages to all parks and trails in the area.

The best part of this race is we will be giving back to those that have made the trails possible. The ECHO Grant has enabled the trails to be built. Local runners, walkers and bikers are utilizing portions of these trails every day thanks to ECHO. We want to ensure the publicity gets out about these trails and the importance of continuing the efforts to complete the rail-trail in its full vision.

Thank you to The Friends of Volusia County Trails, Inc. for keeping the trails in the forefront of the local media and for your future efforts of our beloved trail system! We support your dream to reconnect an increasingly urban and sedentary American population with the nation's parks, trails and open spaces.
