Race one of Tallahassee's classic courses—with a twist!
The Nenes of Indianhead Acres have hosted the Women's Distance Festival every September since 1998 on a certified course familiar to many local runners. In 2014, the Nene Fest 5k began to use the same course in the spring.
Last year, the Nene Fest 5k got an update: for the first time, the course was used for a 2-way race. Runners can choose to tackle the course counterclockwise (the traditional WDF direction) or clockwise.
Race Day Registration starts at 6:45 a.m., 5K starts at 8:00 a.m., 1 Mile Fun Run starts at 9:00 a.m.
Awards will be given to the following categories:
5K: Top 3 Male/Female 16+, Top 3 Male/Female 15 and under
Fun Run: First 3 finishers, 12 and under only
Golden level sponsors: Kant Realty, Vertigo Burgers & Fries
Silver level sponsors: Awards4U, Community Coop Market, Fiorini Chiropractic Center, Just Fruits and Exotics
All runners start together on East Indianhead Drive. After 700 yards, counterclockwise runners split left, while clockwise runners continue straight up the hill.
Both groups cover the middle miles of the course in opposite directions. Keep right and wave hello as you meet your rivals!
The two courses converge 550 yards before the line, and runners finish together.
This race benefits the Hartsfield PTO, to support school activities.
On or before Wednesday, April 26, 2023: $20 for 5K, $10 for Fun Run, $5 for Hartsfield students.
