The Friends of Wakulla Springs State Park presented a Grand Prix Wakulla Springs 5K Trail Run and 1 mile Fun Run May 21, 2011. The Friends partnered with the Gulf Winds Track Club which set up the course and provided assistance and electronic timing for the race.

The unique run went through a wilderness area of the State Park which is not open to the general public.

More than 400 runners participated in the runs and were treated to a riverboat cruise on the Wakulla River afterwards.

Proceeds from special events like this annual trail run are used by the Friends of Wakulla Springs to support Park activities. The refurbishing of the riverboats and converting them to electric from gasoline power is the latest project.
