Location: 7250 Parkshore Drive, Apollo Beach, FL 33572

Join us for the Turkey Trot at Waterset Thanksgiving morning! Proceeds of the Turkey Trot will benefit our local public schools: Doby Elementary, Eisenhower Middle School, East Bay High School, and the Dorothy C. York Innovation Academy. 

The race is chip timed and a flat course.  Want to participate virtually? No problem. Just sign up and send us a note that you’ll be doing your race remotely*

Registration is required.




*Virtual participant race packets are not guaranteed to arrive prior to Thanksgiving morning.

• 5K participants will receive a race bib, dri-fit race t-shirt, and finishers' medal. 

• Kids’ Fun Run participants will receive a race bib, cotton race t-shirt, and medal.

• The 5K race route will be the same route as years past (north and south on Waterset Blvd. starting by The Lakeside).

• The Kids’ Fun Run route will be: 1 mile around the lake, and for the little ones we’ll do a special mini route😊.

• Strollers and pets are welcome. Please go to the back of the starting line so the competitive participants can start first.

• If you’d like to keep your distance when you walk/run, feel free to stay back and let participants start and then you can start your race – since it’s chip timed, your time won’t start until you cross the starting line.
