The course, supervised by the Fort Myers Track Club, travels long the trails at the nature center and a portion of the asphalt bike path on Ortiz and will be timed with Chrono Track Bib Tag Technology

All proceeds benefit the Fort Myers Metro-McGregor Kiwanis BUG (Bring UP Grades) program, designed to provide recognition to local elementary students who raise their grades to an acceptable range and maintain or continue to raise them from one grading period to the next.
