The 12th Annual Turkey Day 5K in Sanford, Florida is back!! While the pandemic of 2020 drastically changed all of our lives, we are excited to return to our more traditional event as Seminole County's largest Thanksgiving Day fun run. This event is open to all participants - competitive runners, joggers and walkers as a great annual tradition for all families and friends.
Turkey Day 5K In Person Costume Contest is back:
Come dressed in your favorite and most unique Thanksgiving Day costume. Be sure to arrive early so that our judges can select our finalist by 7:35am. At 7:40am, we will have the finalists gather by the starting corral where all of the participants in the race will vote by loudest applause for the overall winner. The winner of the costume contest will received a $100 Visa gift card.
This event will benefit the Christian Sharing Center. The Sharing Center provides basic and essential needs during times of financial crisis. We ask ALL participants on race morning to bring some non perishable food to help stock their food pantry and feed those in need.
Also, feel free to bring used running shoes. This was very popular last year and we were able to give out dozens of pairs of shoes to those in need. :)
