Let's burn off as many calories as possible before the bird even comes out of the oven! Join FloDash runners and walkers for the 5th annual AdventHealth Groveland Turkey Trot 5K & 10k presented by LiveTrends Design Group, as we start our Thanksgiving morning with a nation wide tradition for the entire family. Participants will experience a safe and distanced start and finish line at Cherry Lake Park. Run or walk on a course designed to showcase some of Groveland's most beautiful hills on the Wilson Lake Parkway trail and there is some off road, hard packed for a portion of the 10K. You can view the course map below, on this page.  Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates and sneak peaks at the swag. 

All participants will receive a chip timed bib, a race shirt to be revealed soon, a finisher's medal and a post race snack and beverage.

There will be race day registration but the price does go up so register early and save. Please read our refund /exchange bib policy and our Frequently Asked Questions to get all the information you need. There are no refunds, but we do have a generous exchange policy.

WE HAVE THE BEST REFERRAL REWARDS!!! FloDash Events will refund you $20 as a thank you when you get 5 friends to sign up using the referral link you receive with your registration confirmation email.

Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks for everything you have in your life. To many, it's also about giving back. We will conduct a collection of non perishables during packet pickup and race day that will be delivered to the local non profit the  Neighborhood Center of South Lake to help feed local families during the Christmas Holiday. In addition, donations made will also benefit The Neighborhood Center of South Lake.

All registrations to the same team after that will already reflect the $5 discount at checkout. 

STROLLER AND DOG RESTRICTIONS: For safety reasons NO pets of any kind are allowed on the race course during the event, so leave your turkey home🦃 Service dogs will be allowed and we ask that you please line up at the end of the pack.

Please help us execute a safe race for everyone and leave your pooch and wheels off the course. Strollers please line up at the back of the pack.
