The Hellcat 10k/30k/50k races are a fundraiser for the Military Museum of North Florida. The museum is a 501 C-3 Corp. Entrance to the museum is free for all runners and their families on the event day.
Historic Lee Field in Green Cove Springs is home to the US Navy's F6F Hellcat fighter of WWII fame. The course is a loop course around the perimeter of the old base. Each loop is 6.2 miles. The 10km runners do it once, 30km runners do it 3 times, and 50km runners do it 5 times. The course is a combination of pavement and dirt roads without roots or rocks. Runners will go thru scenic cypress swamps with an abundance of wildlife, including gators, deers, and bears.
