Jacksonville, FL

Perfect Ten Loop

This route is a perfect 10–miles! Created by USA Track & Field, this ten mile course starts and finishes at the Lakewood Shopping Center at the corner of San Jose Blvd and University Blvd. West. This is the site of the original 1st Place Sports — Jacksonville’s iconic running store. The Perfect 10 got its name not for beauty or terrain, but because it was measured several times. The legend goes that every time one of the 1st Place Sports team members lowered the course record in training the course would be remeasured. Notwithstanding the route’s origins, it is a pleasant run with good views of the St. Johns River, in the San Marco and Miramar areas.
