See what people are saying about the Runner’s Classic...

There are a bunch of us that are avid runners and/or Triathletes in the Orlando and surrounding area. We all agree THIS IS THE BEST LOCAL RACE, great volunteers, phenomenal food, incredible prizes.

Wow! what a great race and venue. I raced as a sponsored athlete with Aquaphor. The whole race was along the golf cart paths and boy was it something else! It allowed us to run around beautifully manicured golf greens, with a stunning landscape surrounding the perimeter.

The event had an expo and awards ceremony inside the convention center, can I just say, indoor bathrooms and air conditioning while you eat breakfast and coffee and wait for awards, it just can’t get any better.

This race is worth the trip to Orlando. Stay the night at the resort and enjoy everything you can. Get up and run a great course and grab a late check out. It makes for the perfect weekend get away!

The Runner’s Classic is a fabulous race! It takes place in a beautiful setting and is well organized. The course is challenging, but in a fun kind of way. The age group awards, goody bags, post race food and door prizes are phenomenal.

The Runner’s Classic is a great race. I love to run it and get up at 1:00 AM and drive 140 miles from Bell, Florida every year.

In America, nearly 16 million children in the U.S. suffer from food insecurity - that’s more than 1 in 5 kids in your community and across the country who may go to bed hungry tonight.

Hunger hurts any time, but during the holidays it seems to hurt a little more. Help ensure these kids and their families don’t have an empty fridge this holiday season. Help us provide meals for those in need by bringing ‘canned’ food race day morning. DONATIONS WILL ONLY BE ACCEPTED AT THE EVENT SITE.
