Join us for the first inaugural Florida Turkey Trot serving the Lakewood Ranch, Sarasota and Bradenton communities.

Fit2Run and Nathan Benderson Park are coming together to provide a 5K Turkey Trot to help local families kick off their Thanksgiving! This race will become a part of your Thanksgiving tradition as you enjoy the festivities at this world-class venue.

Chip-timed runners cross the finish line after running the floating final mile over the lake, and will be awarded a tasty sweet treat and celebratory beverage to begin their Thanksgiving feast. Non-timed walkers will also enjoy the festive fun, along with age bracketed distances for Kids’ Turkey Dashes.

All participants will receive an exclusive shirt and finisher medal. The whole family will gobble with glee as they enjoy race day activities for all ages! Don’t miss out on the inaugural running of your new Thanksgiving tradition.

FOOD DONATIONS: Canned food donations will be accepted by Fit2Run and NBP on race day so All Faiths Food Bank can provide healthy solutions to end hunger in our community this holiday season.

Proceeds from the race benefit The Suncoast Aquatic Nature Center Associates, Inc. (SANCA), a not-for-profit 501c3 business created to manage Nathan Benderson Park, a community/public asset and world class, multi-use sports venue. SANCA’s mission is to improve the quality of life for our community and be an economic generator for our region.
