Track Shack has been granted permission to host its 44th Annual OUC Orlando Half Marathon on Saturday, December 5 at Lake Eola.
“The running community has waited nine months to gather and the OUC Orlando Half Marathon will be the first race “run” in Orlando. This community has proven its ability to safely bring sports back. Following guidelines and protocols, we are ready to run, walk, raise funds for local causes and celebrate healthy living.”
