2020 Race Info! Very Important!!!
This year's event will be one to remember for sure! We will have a virtual option for those who prefer to run on their own or join us between 7 am - 9:30 am on Thanksgiving morning. There will be no official start at 7 am, but runners and their families are able to run/walk the course anytime between 7 and 9:30 am. The course will be self sufficient and runners must provide their own water and bathrooms will not be available. We will have the course open and marked, start/finish line, music and a race clock set up. All participants and family members must wear a mask at the start/finish line area. Medals will be distributed at the packet pick up, not on race day. There will be NO chip timing this year. We want to keep this as simple, yet still fun and raise some money for West Texas Rehab! There will also be NO race day registration. Registrations received prior to Nov 8th will be guaranteed a shirt. We will not be ordering lots of extra's this year so we can donate as much money as possible to West Texas Rehab!
Abilene Turkey Trot winds through the Lytle neighborhood in Abilene, Texas. It is a great race for a fun time with family and friends. Proceeds benefit the West Texas Rehab Center and the Abilene Runners Club. Along with the 5K, there is also a 1-mile fun-run for kids. Our motto is "Walk/run 3.1 miles and eat guilt free the rest of the day!" See you on Thanksgiving morning!
