This 5km/10km walk is rated 1B. Event opens at 8:45am. Avondale is a historical area just east of downtown Jacksonville, Florida, that runs along the St. John’s River. The streets are lined with large oak trees and the neighborhood has a variety of architectures. Many homes used coquina for foundations and fireplaces and most still have the original hardwood floors and bathroom fixtures and tubs. There are 15 small parks with trees and plants including live oaks, magnolias, palms, azaleas, and dogwoods, conveying a strong sense of time and place. The roads and sidewalks are sometimes uneven and may cause problems for strollers and wheelchairs. Much of the route is shady. Pets must be on leashes and owners are required to clean up waste. This event doesn't have any special Programs assigned. IVV Credit is available.
