Gobble Gobble...It's Turkey Trot Time!

Just like the name, Get Basted;  This will be the "2nd helpings" of our Turkey Trots! 

Event details and schedule

Two weeks before Thanksgiving in 2011 we decided that we wanted to give back to all the participants who came out to race with us over the course of the year. Thanksgiving morning seemed to be the perfect time, and giving them a FREE race would be the perfect way to say thanks. We're continuing that tradition...If you've crossed under our finish line in any race from Dec. 1, 2018  - Nov. 22, 2019 you've earned yourself a FREE spot in any of the races.

NEW THIS YEAR...THE Get Basted Turkey Trot Race.  Everything will be the same...but we're letting you race on Sunday, November 24 in Cumming, GA, if you want to.

THAT'S THIS RACE YOU ARE ABOUT TO REGISTER FOR!

If you haven't crossed under our finish line this year...that's OK too...You can still come out and join us...it's just $17.

Course

NOTHING is completely flat.

It's a 5K loop, so if you're running with your friends who want to run further, you'll be able to run together for the first part, and they'll take off and finish up on their own.

The further you go, the more loops you'll do. We'll have loads of entertainment along the way, so you won't event realize it's multiple laps. You'll need to finish in 3 hours (we'll keep the clock going till the last finisher comes in, but the police & aid stations will be leaving). That's a 13:45 avg pace.

Shirts

We'll have Long sleeve tech shirts ($15), Long sleeve cotton ($15), and we'll be getting hoodies ($20) too this year.  Just pick out what you want, and we'll get you squared away.

Groups & Teams

Grab your buddies, co-workers, family, or random strangers and put a team together. You'll get some great pictures if you all dress the same.  

Best dressed group will get a prize!

Event Cap

It is our goal to NOT put an event cap in place...however, about 1 month prior we will need to order finisher medals. At that point, we will not be able to guarantee finisher awards to registrations coming afterwards. SO...Register early.

 

Five Star Championships

This is one of the last chances to earn a spot in the 5K/10K championships, and it's a big group that will earn spots.  Check out www.fivestarntp.com for a complete explanation as to how the spots are allocated.
