Great Groveland Barefoot Challenge

• The Great Groveland Barefoot Laps Challenge is returning to the Sunshine State on Saturday, March 23rd for Groveland’s Founders Day festival.

• A nod to the classic barefoot lap endurance contest, this contest is a test to see who can barefoot the longest around Lake David.

The twist: after the second full lap, the boat will decrease speed by 2 mph and continue to decrease speed by 2 mph on every lap until the skier falls.

• Anyone can sign up to compete. Barefoot suits are allowed. AND, there’s a new division — the duct tape division.

• Get more details and lock in your spot to compete at or via Facebook
