Fairchild 5K Challenge, March 26th, 2016
Imagine if you will: a 5K running course through the stunning garden collections and exhibits of the Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden. You start at a brisk pace through a tropical rainforest, make your way through a dry desert, and finish strong in the Palmetum, a grove of 1,000 palms. Last year, we sold out this run with more than 300 runners! Join us Saturday, March 26th, 2016, as we run today to conserve tomorrow. This event is for a worthy cause and we would be honored to have you participate!
Join the Fairchild Palms for our second 5K at the beautiful Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, nestled on over 83 acres in Coral Gables, along Old Cutler Road. Whether you are an advanced runner looking to improve on your time and snag the official and historic title as winner of the first Fairchild Palms 5K or a family with little ones just out for a morning jog in the Garden, there’s something for everyone!
