Enjoy a fun Saturday morning run or walk through beautiful Morgan Park, near downtown Arcadia, FL. The course consists of both paved and unpaved surfaces and meanders through the trees and along the gorgeous Peace River. The park sustained extensive damage during Hurricane Ian, but crews have been working diligently to return it to the beautiful course we have come to love. We are thrilled to be able to return this year to this awesome venue.
