Live races continue in 2021! FloDash has announced its race schedule for the year, and it includes two brand-new races and the return of four unique races in Lake County. We will continue to follow CDC COVID-19 guidelines and encourage our participants to practice social distancing before, during and after races, and virtual participation in all the races is an option.
Runners and walkers from all over Central Florida will participate in the third annual Showcase of Citrus 5k Saturday, Feb. 27. Participants will dash through the groves and enjoy 100% pure Florida fun right in the peak of citrus season while watching the sunrise as through the fields and finish the distance with a refreshing farm fresh slushie or beer a few steps away. Participants will take home one of a kind custom made race medal by LiveTrends. This will be the fifth LIVE race produced by FloDash since the pandemic and will adhere to all CDC health guidelines. Bring friends and family members of all ages to run or walk this unique 5K and stay the morning for some fun things to do! From 4×4 monster truck adventures to relaxing while picking some fresh Florida citrus. Check out their farm store full of delicious local treats and freshly squeezed orange juice. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Central Florida.
The Lake Catherine Blueberry 5k & Healthy Living Festival Saturday, April 10, will kick off with a family-friendly 5k run/walk through the beautiful blueberry farm located in Groveland during the peak of blueberry season.
