    As of June 23, 2020 we have the final YES from the City of Clermont that our race with our detailed COVID plan will happen live!  Come celebrate your Freedom with FloDash Events!  There is still the option of virtual and we respect every person's right to choose what is best for themselves.

    The First Annual Clermont Freedom 5K will take place on July 4th in Downtown Clermont, Florida.  We are closing down the streets and running through our beautiful town on a day that we celebrate our nation's freedom.  Family and Friends will enjoy running or walking on this fantastic race course as well as have the opportunity to run it on their own virtually and still enjoy our race swag.  Have fun while earning your custom medal and enjoy starting your 4th with a healthy activity.

    We will not have aid stations on the 5K course.  Participants are encouraged to carry their own hydration.  Pre and post race fluids will be distributed in sealed bottles and delivered by volunteers wearing gloves. If you need hydration products, hand held or waist belt hydration bottles, please visit  Dash Sports in advance so you can get the right accessories and  be prepared. 

    We are excited to be working with the City of Clermont while watching for directives from the CDC as well as state and county officials for live group events. We are planning on a live race in a new format and under new guidelines. We recommend you familiarize yourself with FloDash Events refund policy  as well as review up to date CDC Guidelines and Declaration of Health all posted on the top of this page. This Declaration of Health will be emailed to all participants prior to packet pickup to be filled out and emailed back. 

    What do I get with my Entry: Accurate Timing by Race Smith Timing, Closed Downtown Clermont course, Custom Finisher's Medal, Suncreek Beer, Post Race bagels from Henderson Bagel Co and a  High Quality T-shirt.  In addition, all participants picking up their packets on Thursday or Friday ONLY, will receive an awesome custom buff compliments of our partners Dash Sports and Visit Lake County!!

    Group Pricing : Bring your friends, co-workers or family members and create a team!! Teams of 4 or more will receive $5 off each participant. 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 $5 refund. All registrations to the same team after that will already reflect the $5 discount.

    Event Transfers:  Did you train a little more or a little less than you thought you would?  You may log in to your Run Signup.com account and transfer to a different distance or race. The only cost will be the difference between the race for which you signed up and the current price of the race you now want to do, plus the transaction fee.  If you transfer down there will not be a refund.  Please refer to our refund policy section for more details on  transfer deadlines. We will not field requests to transfer via email the week of the race.  

    Bib Gifting:  Did something come up in life or an injury?  We will miss you!  But you are allowed to transfer your bib to another participant at no extra cost.  Log in to your Run Signup account and you can gift the registration to someone else at no extra cost.  Yes, you can ask the person for the entry fee, but we don't have to know about it.  The t-shirt size will remain the same as what you registered.  Bib gifting deadline is June 29, 2020.  We will not field requests to transfer via email the week of the race. If you still want to be a part of the day, we can always use more volunteers!  Race Bandits or participants using other's bib is highly discouraged and puts the whole race in jeopardy.  Please respect the race and your fellow racers and do not attempt to do this.
