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 2nd annual Groveland Turkey Trot 5K & 10k 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 the brand new Cherry Lake Park. Run or walk on a beautiful course designed to showcase some of Groveland's most beautiful hills on the Wilson Lake Parkway trail and some off road for the 10K participants. You can view the course map on this page.
Since the start of the pandemic, FloDash Events, LLC has produced 4 successful live races under the new Covid race protocol. Reducing touch points and distancing our runners at the start and finish line has allowed our participants to enjoy live racing without any concerns. Please read our refund /exchange bib policy and our Frequently Asked Questions to get all the information you need. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS.
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.
There will be race day registration for $45 for the 5k and $55 for the 10k, and there are shirts for everyone!
All participants will receive a chip timed bib, a race shirt, a finisher's medal and a post race snack and beverage.
Part of the proceeds to benefit the non-profit organization "Friends of the Marion Baysinger Library" in Groveland.
Packet Pickup: Stop by Dash Sports at 741 W Montrose Street in Downtown Clermont to grab your packet on Wednesday from 1pm - 7pm or race day morning at the race venue from 6:00am-7:00am.
AWARDS: Awards will begin at 8:45am with the 5K results and followed by the 10K results shortly after. Categories are top 3 Male and Female overall, Male and Female Masters, and top 3 Male and Female in 10 year age groups, starting with 9 and under up to 70 and over. We will not be posting them at the venue, you may log in to our results page to view them as participants finish. PLEASE do not crowd around the podium to cheer on your buddies, we know this is a fun part of racing but we want to continue to exercise with caution so only hang around if you have qualified for an award. The finish line area is pretty big so we encourage finishers to spread out and wait for their names to be called out. We suggest you wear a mask to receive your award. Awards not picked up will be held at Dash Sports for ONE WEEK ONLY so please make arrangements to have them picked up if you cannot stay after the event.
TEAM / FAMILY DISCOUNTS: Bring the whole gang and take advantage of our group pricing when 4 or more members register under the same team name. Teams of 4 or more will receive $5 off each registration. Upon creating the team, the first 3 registrants will pay full price, once the team minimum of 4 members has been reached, the previous 3 registrations will receive an automatic $5 refund. 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. Bicycles, skateboards, or any other non-authorized motorized carts or vehicles are not allowed on the race course during the event. 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.
SPONSORSHIPS: In order to accomplish our goals, we need your help! Do you want your business to be seen in a new light on social media?

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 Faith Neighborhood Center to help feed local families during the Christmas Holiday. Donations made will be donated to a local non profit, details will be updated here.
Participants will cross the street at the park entrance and walk left towards the start corrals. The race will start on the trail portion, heading out 1.5 miles on the trail and turning back to run the way back on the road. The race will finish back on the trail portion on the park side.
FloDash Events is proud to help out our community by donating part of our race proceeds to a local non-profit. The Groveland Turkey Trot 5K will be helping out Friends of Marion Baysinger Memorial Library (FriendsMBML) and the Groveland/Mascotte Community:
The mission of Friends is to create and encourage public support for the library in the development and promotion of library services and to provide supplemental financial assistance.
