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. Race finishers cross the finish line after running the floating final mile over the lake and will be awarded a tasty sweet treat to commence their Thanksgiving feast. All race participants will receive a race shirt that can be picked up at packet pick-up or race day, and a beautiful finisher medal at the finishline. Top finishers to cross the finish line will also receive a special commemorative gift. 

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.
