A look at the first ever 5k at Legoland Florida – Winter Haven Hospital Foundation Citrus Classic


The Winter Haven Hospital Foundation Citrus Classic 5k was this morning at Legoland Florida. It was the very first running race held at the new theme park.

First ever 5k at Legoland Florida - Winter Haven Hospital Foundation Citrus Classic

This video shows what it’s like to run through Legoland. Below are additional views from the race and descriptions of some of the scenes in the view.

Runners started just within the Legoland property and continued around the perimeter of the parking lot.

The runners entered the parking lot itself, by running through the toll plaza.

Some of the fastest runners turn the corner past this brave volunteer.

Entering Legoland park, running right through the turnstiles.

The runners then ran past the Legoland roller coasters.

One of the nice things about Legoland are the shady areas and the tall trees. It makes Legoland feel like a city park.

The runners then ran through much of the original Cypress Gardens, including a circle under the beautiful Banyan tree.

This view was probably the most-photographed of the original Cypress Gardens. Today, this Southern Belle is always there for a guest photo.

Runners then took a quick tour through the Miniland section. Here, runners are passing the Kennedy Space Center models.

The turnstiles marked the last dozen yards of the course.

And finally to the finish line race timing mats, in the Legoland entrance plaza.
