Fiddler’s Green 5k Story

You can Run!

You can Walk!

You can Stroll Pint .5k (1640 feet)!

You can participate virtually! 

You can get friends to sponsor you and WIN some great prizes! 

Let’s get outside, have fun and raise money for great local charities (100% of net proceeds go directly to the Conductive Education Center of Orlando (CECO) and Habitat for Humanity of Winter Park- Maitland).

What started as a lark some fourteen years ago as a way to help out the local community, has evolved into the most fun you can have supporting local organizations! The Fiddler’s 5k has become the premier independent 5k road race in Winter Park. The annual event hosted by Fiddlers Green Irish Pub will begin at Mead Gardens and wind through the streets of Winter Park. It will be followed by the craziest after-party of any 5k in the Orlando area.

Starting at Mead Garden at 7:30am, the 5k run/walk winds thru the shaded tree lined streets of Winter Park. Then following the 5k, everyone is invited back to Fiddlers Green Irish Pub for a free beer, live Irish music, Irish dancers, and a fun time for all!

The Fiddlers 5k is about more than the run…and the beer…it is about the opportunity to benefit local charities. Over the years these runs have included many great charities and this year our beneficiaries are the Habitat for Humanity and CECO (Conductive Education Center for Orlando).

Over the past 14 years over $300,000 has been raised for local charities, so the fun and festivities have a much larger purpose.

Even if you don’t want to run in the Fiddler’s 5K you can still help out by making a direct donation, becoming a fundraiser, or supporting a runner and team.

You can also become a Fiddlers 5K sponsor and really show your generosity!
