Cherrylake Farm Races

Saturday February 6th, 2021

Groveland, FL

Official Website


Experience the iconic rolling hills of Cherrylake’s 1,000 acre farm with this unique race, located right outside of Clermont, Florida. The clay running terrains traverse natural lakes and endless rows of trees, and the cycling event connects to the eminent Cherry Lake Road course. Choose from either a duathlon, 5k or 10k. Connect with nature and participate in this unique race, while getting an extra dose of oxygen. See updates and sneak peeks on our Facebook page or visit farmraces.com

  • Duathlon: 5k-20k-2.5k race with the running portion off road through the farm and the bike portion on the rolling hills of Cherry Lake Road.  The Duathlon requires a one-day or yearly USAT license. Join or renew here.

  • 5k & 10k: Off road runs throughout Cherrylake’s farm.

We will have water available before the race and at several aid stations on the course. Each finisher will receive accurately chip-timed results, a custom medal, a 2022 race gift, and post-race food.

In honor of each participant, Cherrylake will donate a tree to be planted in a protected conservation area to be enjoyed for many generations to come. All proceeds will benefit a non-profit.
