    3K Raptor Run presented by the St. Augustine Alligator Farm

    BENEFICIARY
    Proceeds of this community event will benefit the Orianne Center for Indigo Snake Conservation For more information: https://www.centralfloridazoo.org/about-the-zoo/ocic/

    The Orianne Center for Indigo Conservation (OCIC) is the sole captive propagation and release colony for the Federally Threatened Eastern Indigo Snake Drymarchon couperi.  Established in 2010, OCIC works closely with multiple government agencies, AZA zoos, and NGOs to ensure proper management of the captive Eastern Indigo Snake for breeding and reintroduction.  The snakes housed at OCIC have produced over 250 Eastern Indigo Snakes, allowing for the release of over 170 indigo snakes in Conecuh National Forest in Alabama and The Nature Conservancy’s Apalachicola Bluffs and Ravines Preserve in Florida. Raised funds are to be specifically ear-marked for disease screening in wild snakes and captive snakes slated for release.

    3K USATF Certified Course # FL20012JK

    https://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=7425750

    The purpose of the USATF course certification program is to produce road race courses of accurately measured distances. For any road running performance to be accepted as a record or be nationally ranked, it must be run on a USATF-certified course. In addition, the certification program is very important to the average road racer, as well as those of exceptional speed. Most runners like to compare performances run on different courses, and such comparisons are difficult if course distances are not reliable. No one can truly establish a personal best if the course distance is not accurate.

    There will be free parking at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm for the entire day. The start and finish of the race will be at the Alligator Farm.
