Friends.   Friends of Anastasia's mission statement is "Friends gathered together to celebrate, protect and enhance the natural
beauty in Anastasia State Park".

                       BOTH RACES STARTED TOGETHER  at 7:30 AM Ocean Front.
This 10k (6.2 mile) run through Anastasia State Park's beach, hammock, and salt marsh takes you through some of St. Johns

shoots the runners back down the main park road to the beach for a final loop on the sand. This is a cross country run and
participants must be fit to run or walk on soft sand, uneven terrain, mixed pavement types, and hills with sun exposure, heat, and
humidity, etc.
