Flo-Town 5k Run/Walk 2024

Florence , SC

The City of Florence Employee Wellness Program and Florence Track Club have partnered to bring you the 9th Annual Flo-Town 5K Run/Walk. The certified course will begin at the City's Waste Water Management Facility quickly accessing the Florence Trail System's Freedom Florence Connections. These trails, located in East Florence, make up approximately 8 miles of the City's Trail system. The course is comprised of natural beauty and history adjacent to the tranquil Jeffries Creek and the Florence Stockade. The Stockade and neighboring National Cemetery developed during the Civil War, and veterans from all wars since that time have been, and are still being, interred here.

Runners and walkers will follow a natural path that winds through the woods adjacent to Jeffries Creek, across boardwalks, around the Freedom Florence pond, and return to trails near the old site of the Florence Stockade. Participants will cross a boardwalk bridge that passes over the southern wall of the stockade. The trail enters an area that was once a Confederate prisoner-of-war camp for Union soldiers during the American Civil War. The trail connects to an open broom straw field that served as an area for bordering guard posts and rifle pits during the war. Participants will follow the trail around the outer edge of this field and finish at the adjacent Waste Water Management Facility. At this newly completed LEED® Certified Administration & Laboratory Building, participants will have access to showers and restrooms. The Flo-Town 5K Event offers runners and walkers a trek through history and the enjoyment of the landscape inherent to the Pee Dee along the wetlands of Jeffries Creek - definitely, a 5K event you don't want to miss!
