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 inaugural Groveland Turkey Trot 5K 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 and run/walk  on a beautiful course designed to showcase some of Groveland's most beautiful hills on the Wilson Lake Parkway trail.

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.

AWARDS: Top finishers will have a choice of red or white wine from our sponsors at Lakeridge Winery (grape juice for our underage winners). Awards will be announced live via Facebook after the event has concluded and will be given to the top 3 Male and Female overall, top Male and Female Masters, and top 3 Male and Females in 10 year age groups, starting with 10 and under up to 70 and over. 

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 10% 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 10% refund. All registrations to the same team after that will already reflect the 10% discount at checkout. 

STROLLER AND DOG RESTRICTIONS: For safety reasons NO pets of any kind  or strollers / joggers are allowed on the race course during the event.   Service dogs will be allowed and we ask that you please register for the last corral time for everyone's safety. 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. 

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? Do you need your business to be seen by more family oriented and health conscious people?  Do you like running races or want to be a part of that community? Join us!   For more information  please contact Amalie Skorman at 407-230-8756 or at Volunteer opportunities are also available for groups or individuals.

Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks for everything you have in your life. To many, it's also about giving back.  Part of the proceeds will benefit a local non for profit in Groveland as well as a collection of non perishables for a food pantry. We are working with Groveland to identify a charity within the city.


We will be collecting non perishable items for the Faith Neighborhood Center so they may serve local families with meals for the Christmas Holiday. Please help them by bringing your items to either packet pickup or race day. 

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. 

The programs below are funded entirely by the Friends at no charge to the patrons:
