Carillon Classic 5k

May 01, 2021

7:30 am - 10:30 am

The Carillon Classic 5K at Bok Tower Gardens features what many consider Central Florida’s most challenging 5K course. In 2021, the race will take place on May 1. COVID-19 precautions will be in place.

Carillon Classic

This unique 5K requires runners and walkers to cope with elevation changes as well as a variety of terrains, including paved roads and gravel and mulch trails. You’ll enjoy music from the famed carillon tower as you run atop Iron Mountain, one of the highest points on the Florida peninsula.

Race Route

Runners experience elevation changes and various running surfaces, including paved roads plus grass, gravel, and mulch trails. One of the race’s most unique aspects is the Singing Tower’s musical encouragement as the bells ring out during the race.

A kid’s fun run will occur post-race, providing junior runners with a shorter course.

Register online.

Race Day

Race day registration at Bok Tower Gardens begins at 6:30 a.m. and the race will begin at 7:30 a.m. The Race Day entry fee of $35 includes free admission to Bok Tower Gardens on race day for runners and their families.

The event is open to adults and students in grades 1-12 and encourages groups to sign up for the team competition.
