About This Activity

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. Run or walk  on a beautiful course designed to showcase some of Groveland's most beautiful hills on the Wilson Lake Parkway trail.  You can view the course map on this page.


All participants will receive a chip timed bib, a race shirt, a finisher's medal and a post race snack and beverage. Enjoy a delicious treat from The Simple Scone, one per participant.

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-6pm or race day morning at the race venue from 6:30am-7:30am.  

AWARDS: Top finishers will have receive a bottle of Southern Red wine from our sponsors at Lakeridge Winery (grape juice for our underage winners). Awards will be announced after the event and posted on Facebook once the event has concluded. You may wait away from the finish area and pick up your award in person, Flodash staff will hold awards until race site has been cleaned up and then brought to Dash Sports for those wanting to pick up later in the week. Awards 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. Please check out Dash Sports hours of operation if you chose to pick up your wine later in the week.

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.

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?

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 the non profit  Friends of Marion Baysinger Memorial Library and a collection on non perishables during packet pickup and race day will be delivered to the local non profit Faith Neighborhood Center to help feed local families during the Christmas Holiday
