Clermont Clay 15K

November 01, 2020 October 27, 2019 October 28, 2018 October 15, 2017

APPROVED TO RACE LIVE on the world famous Clay loop!!! As of August 21st, 2020 this race has been given the green light  by Lake County to be a live event!!! The Clermont Clay 15K will have race cap so don’t delay your registration and reserve your spot. A new race format has been implemented to comply with the new social distancing guidelines. Please read all the details on this page to familiarize yourself with the new race format and help us execute a safe and fun event for everyone. In order to adhere to the new social distancing recommendations by state and county officials as well as the CDC, participants will need to pick a time corral upon registration. Corrals will be every 5 minutes with 80 participants in each slot. Participants will toe the start line 5 at a time, 6 feet apart, as we move the 80 runners through. 

The event owner 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, we are hopeful that 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.
