Tip Of The Day

Avoid Skipping Recovery

Listening to your body is key to avoiding injury and burnout. Your body can actually grow stronger when you are at rest. The process of training includes workouts that are strategically placed along with rest days, which provides stimulation during the activity and recovery when you are at rest. If you are new to running, it is important not to push yourself to hard. Injuries can pop up when training advances too quickly. If your body is giving you warning signs, listen and take the extra time off so you can fully adjust and recover to meet your specific fitness needs.

2019 River-N-Rapids Half Marathon, 10k & 5k

Now in it's eigth year, the River-N-Rapids Half Marathon, 10k & 5k has grown into one of our most popular events--with trails to challenge you and one of the most scenic courses in the state.

Opened in 1938, Hillsborough River State Park is one of Florida's first state parks; this original Civilian Conservation Corps park is divided by the swiftly flowing Hillsborough River with a set of Class II rapids.

The 2019 River-N-Rapids Half Marathon and 10k will have participants running along the high banks of the river above the rapids, through a variety of habitats, past some huge oak trees, over the historic CCC suspension bridge and then onto the park's Rapids Trail. The River-N-Rapids 5k will take participants across the river, across the suspension bridge and then onto the park's Rapids Trail--scenic incentive to get your body moving!
