Where and when is the Bahia Shrine Inaugural 5k Camel Walk/Run?

Our event will be held at the beautiful Northwest Recreation Complex located at 3710 Jason Dwelley Pkwy., Apopka, FL 32712.

Why two start times?

We are anticipating a large crowd of participants so it is necessary to split the participants into two groups based on finish time. The faster runners and walkers who can complete the 3.1 mile course in 45 minutes or less will have a start time of 8am. This is a 15 min/mile pace. The 9am start time is for those participants who will complete the course within an hour and a half. We will clear the race course at 10:30am.

Can I choose my start time?

No, the start times are designed to place walkers and runners according to finish time since the first group must be off the course prior to the start of the second race at 9am.

Can I wear head phones?

While we discourage the use of any sort of ear buds for safety reasons, the use of ear buds is at your own risk. You don’t want to miss the Shriners cheers.

Are pets allowed?


Do I receive a finishers medal?

Yes, all walkers/runners will receive a unique finishers medal.

Will there be an awards ceremony?

Not this year, we are keeping this as a fun event. We will consider this option for future races.

Can I give or transfer my race bib?

Yes, this is a fun event so if your plans change and you want to give your bib to someone else, go for it.

Are there any refunds?

No, entry fees are not refundable and may not be deferred towards future Bahia Shrine events. Rain or shine the event goes on.
