Lakeland Runners Club 22nd Annual Watermelon Series
Saturday, June 10th, July 8th, and August 12th at 7:00 a.m.
Watermelon Series Logo
The Summer Sunrise Watermelon Race Series was born out of a desire to have low-cost local races during the hot summer months, when it can be hard to stay motivated. Now in its 22nd year, the series has become an established venue for competition and an annual celebration of fitness. It continues to be popular with both experienced and casual runners alike. Many of the local high school cross country teams use it as a tune up for their season. The series is comprised of three 5K (3.1 mile) races, each race hotter than the last.   Your mission is to get faster with each race.  So ask yourself:  #CanYouBeatTheHeat
