    Join runners and walkers on this 4th annual Citrus 5K as we dash through the groves and enjoy 100% pure Florida fun right in the peak of citrus season. You can watch the sunrise as you run through the fields and finish the distance with a refreshing farm fresh slushy or beer a few steps away. Participants will take home one of a kind custom pint made for those ready to tackle some miles in the famous Showcase of Citrus.  

    Since the start of the pandemic, FloDash Events, LLC has produced 5 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.
