The run starts and finishes at the Hyde Park Golf Club Clubhouse. The course will run entirely on the golf course from holes 1 through 13 and the driving range. This will be a run on both terrain and asphalt and will cross cart paths and bridges at points. Cross Country spikes are allowed on the course.
PLEASE NOTE – As this course is run on a golf course, there will be spots of uneven ground, small swales, changes in surfaces (grass to cart paths to wooden bridges) and possible trip hazards on the course (pinecones, sticks, etc.). Runners will need to be aware of the course at all times and take precautions to keep even footing at all times.

The PRS Running Club of Jacksonville, Florida was founded by a group of friends who felt that the Jacksonville running community needed a running club where, on any given day of the week, runners of all abilities could meet up with their friends for a great run and a good time.
Unlike other running groups, the PRS Running Club has its own coach, Paul McRae. Coach McRae, a legendary runner in the Jacksonville, Florida community. Coach McRae is a native of New Zealand and President of Personal Running Solutions, a local Jacksonville business that provides customized training plans and offers one-on-one training sessions. In fact, the symbol of the PRS Running Club, the running kiwi shown above, affectionately known as “Paul”, is the national symbol of New Zealand, known for its ability to survive and persevere even in the most adverse of conditions and circumstances, qualities that are important to any runner. Coach McRae, who has run a 2:27:50 marathon, 1:04:35 half marathon, 28:53 10K and 13:57 5K, along with winning the inaugural Melbourne Marathon and hundreds of local races, attends most of the group runs providing encouragement, inspiration and insight.
The PRS Running Club, with a mission of promoting and encouraging running by educating the community about the benefits of long distance running and endurance athletics, has monthly social events, annual running retreats, puts on fun races to bring new people into running (like the Bold City Beer Run Series and the Krispy Kreme Challenge), and provides scholarships to deserving local high school athletes.
If you want to be part of a running club that is fast, fun and committed to fitness on the First Coast, then the PRS Running Club is for you! To learn more visit www.prsrunningclub.com. If you have any other questions about the club, contact our president, David Scott at [email protected],
