A Run Through Paradise! Take a run through beautiful “old” Florida. Your journey begins at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church where the chapel, built in 1888, is still in use. Made of old pine and showcasing the original stained-glass windows, this chapel is available for worship, weddings and community activities. Continue up North Tropical Trail under majestic live oak and pine trees covered in Spanish moss. You’ll pass Sam’s House, the oldest home in Brevard County and one of the original orange groves. Around the historic cemetery where members of the Island’s pioneer families are buried to the finish line. The tress lined course shows the beauty of the Island and is filled with historical significance. After the race, members of the St. Luke’s family will answer questions about the cemetery and give short tours of the chapel. Refreshments will be served in the air-conditioned Perrine Hall.
