The GFT run course is a scenic out and back course on the South Lake Trail. The GFT 140.6 marathon course is a three lap course, while the GFT 1/3 Distance will only complete one lap of the course. The scenic course is completely on the South Lake Trail and is mostly flat. The course is very spectator friendly allowing spectators at Waterfront Park and Victory Pointe to cheer the 26.2 mile runners on six times before the finish. This year's finish line for all distances will be on Minneola Ave., adjacent to Suncreek Brewery in Downtown Clermont.
Support stations are located approximately every mile and are stocked with water, Gatorade, ice, cola, fruit, cookies, salty snacks, broth (after dark, and more. A run special needs station is located at the park and 26.2 mile runners have the ability to access it multiple times during the race.
All support stations are staffed by local community groups and are themed.
