Where and Why
This is a road race. The "Trail" is the flow of "Toxic" water from the locks to the Ocean. This race is HOT. Its June in South Florida. Be prepared. Its supposed to be hard.
We will be running from Port Mayaca to Stuart Beach, approx 37 miles. We want to continue to bring awareness to the trail of discharge that flows from Lake Okeechobee to the the ocean through Palm City, Stuart, and surrounding areas. This happens each time the locks are opened to release water from the lake, over-saturated with phosphates and other chemicals, into the St. Lucie River via the C-44 canal! This must stop. Science is in agreement on the solution. It needs to be expedited. We encourage all runners, walkers, bikes, and support along the way. Our vision is a trail of people along the road with signs and banners. We must keep the momentum up for our community, our water, and our way of life.
BUY THE LAND! SEND THE WATER SOUTH! RE-HYDRATE THE EVERGLADES! SAVE THE INDIAN RIVER LAGOON ESTUARY!
