The 2nd annual VyStar Emerald Trail 5K presented by JTC Running and 1st Place Sports will take runners, walkers and cyclists through beautiful Springfield and offer an up-close look at multiple points of interest along the future S-Line Connector and Hogans Creek segments of the Emerald Trail. All proceeds from this event benefit Groundwork Jacksonville, the City’s nonprofit partner in building the Emerald Trail and restoring McCoys Creek and Hogans Creek.
The Emerald Trail is a 30-mile urban trail and linear park system that will connect 14 historic neighborhoods to downtown, the St. Johns River, McCoys Creek and Hogans Creek. It will link 16 schools, two colleges and 21 parks among other destinations like cafes, shops, festivals, and events.
As Jacksonville’s signature recreational amenity, the Emerald Trail will be the place where people of all ages, races, cultures and walks of life come together to run, walk, ride and connect with nature and with one another. Learn more at www.groundworkjacksonville.org< or follow @GroundworkJax.
