Lake Apopka Trail Virtual Challenge is a point to point running, walking or trail biking  30K (18.6 mile) event starting at the picturesque Green Mountain Scenic Overlook in Ferndale and ending at the beautiful Magnolia Park in Apopka, or complete the route back for an amazing 60K challenge.  Due to Magnolia Park renovations the event could not be live this year, so we reversed the route so that if you want to run, walk or bike the actual course. There is parking available at Green Mountain Scenic Overlook. Enjoy the spectacular scenery, alligators, birds and maybe bobcats as you run, walk or bike past some of Florida's most beautiful nature.

If you are not in Central Florida to experience this route, select the "Run Anywhere" event option. 

Construction on Orange County Parks' Magnolia Park Eco-tourism Center and other amenities is in progress. While the park remains open, the area between Lake Apopka and Binion Road, including the boat ramp, pavilion and Lake Apopka Loop Trailhead, are CLOSED until further notice. While Magnolia Park eco-tourism center and other amenities are under construction, visitors can park at 2850 Lust Road, Apopka, and enter through the Wildlife Drive entrance (a small gate that will be open for cyclists and hikers). Also note that construction has begun on Lake Apopka Loop Trail that will cause sections on Marsh Rabbit and North-South Roads to be closed to all public access intermittently as needed Mondays through Saturdays (signs will be posted).

 Each participant will receive a technical T-shirt, a cool custom finisher medal and another race amenity.

Donate:  A portion of every entry fee will be donated to Friends of the Green Mountain Scenic Byway to bring awareness and help assist new enhancements to the park.
