Clermont Clay 15K & 5K

Sunday November 1st, 2020

Clermont, FL

Official Website


Run a 15K or 5k on the famous Clermont Clay loop. The event producer is South Lake Multisport Events, Inc a nonprofit created in order to raise awareness and money for running trails in south Lake County. Because of your love and support for the Clay Trail, there will be a portion of 5 Mile Road that will be turned into a dedicated dirt trail in the future.  This dirt trail will have no car traffic and will have amenities which we believe will create an even better endurance venue!  We do not have a timeline or many specifics at this time, but we will keep the Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/10-Mile-Clay-Loop) updated with those details.  

Thanks to the volunteer efforts of everyone involved, we’ve raised nearly $70,000 year to date to put towards endurance venues in South Lake County.

Event Transfers:  Did you train a little more or a little less than you thought you would?  You may log in to your runsignup.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 to get 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 runsignup 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 Oct 27th, 2020.  If you still want to be a part of the day, we always need more volunteers.  https://runsignup.com/Race/Volunteer/FL/Clermont/ClermontClay15K

Finisher Medal: All registered participants that complete either race will receive a finishers medal.

Chip timing:  The 15k and 5k will be chip timed with a chip start for the 15k and gun start for the 5k.

Time Restriction: All participants must be able to maintain a pace of at least 16 minute per mile and must be able to finish in at least 2 1/2 hours.

Restrictions: For safety reasons no pets of any kind are allowed on the race course.  Bicycles, skateboards, or any other non-authorized motorized carts or vehicles are not allowed on the race course. Baby joggers and strollers are welcome, however this is a clay surface so it may be difficult to push, so they are not recommended.
