Crawfordville, Florida --
A Wakulla County road will be temporarily closed in December while the Tallahassee Ultra Distance Classic is held around Wakulla Springs State Park on Saturday, Dec. 11.
The event organizers, the Gulf Winds Track Club, are planning to close a three mile section of Highway 61 (Wakulla Springs Road) between Highway 267 (at the flashing light) south to the Shadeville Highway. The closure will be from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The 30th running of the classic will include a 50K and 50 mile race that originates inside the Wakulla Springs State Park and is run onto Wakulla Springs Highway and back into the park. For park entry, the runners will use the west entrance gate that is closed to the public. The public will continue to use the north gate for access to the park.
