Cheetah's 5k, Presented by Blazing Speed Track Club

Fort Mellon Park, Sanford Florida

The Cheetahs 5K Presented by Blazing Speed Track Club in Sanford, Florida. While COVID-19 has dramatically changed our world and the race industry along with it, we want to offer somewhat of a return to normalcy in the running world.  

As of November 9, 2020, we are excited to announce that the City of Sanford has given us a FINAL permit approval to have a LIVE, IN PERSON race through downtown Sanford.  The only thing that would cancel the live event would be an executive order from the State or Federal government and we don't see that happening.  In the coming weeks, we will communicate with all participants as to the requirements for everyone attending.  Face masks and social distancing will be optional and once you are through the start line, you can remove your face covering if desired. 

We are also offering an option to participate in a virtual race any day that weekend from Thursday, August 26 to Sunday, August 29.

Schedule of Events:

  • Race Day Packet Pickup - 6:00 am
  • Race Start - 7:00 am
  • Kids Dash/Awards - following last runner

For the Virtual Race, you will have the option for us to ship your t-shirt, bib and finisher medal to you via USPS Priority 1 Day Flat Rate Box following the completion of the event (August 29, 2021) for an additional $10 per registered participant.  Please select this add on during registration.  (Families or groups of 4 or more, please contact us directly for special shipping rates.)

The race will be professionally timed and scored by Red Pointer Productions. Disposable, electronic chips will be attached to the bib number. All registered runners will receive individual times.   Times will also be posted on the results board onsite and posted online shortly after event.
