Gobble Gobble...It's Turkey Trot Time & we'd love for you to celebrate our 10th Turkey Trot Anniversary with us!
We are THANKFUL for YOU so for 2020, we are letting EVERYONE run for FREE!! We know that most everyone has lost some registration fees on races (not necessarily with us), and may have had some financial struggles as well due to the pandemic. So to help everyone stay active & help out in our way, we're offering our Turkey Trots for FREE in 2020.
Due to COVID-19, we will only have the 5K Distance LIVE on Race Day. All distances will be available Virtual.
Event details and schedule
Event will be electronically-timed & capped. We will have 5 wave start times so please choose your wave start time for social distancing.
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, 2019 - Nov. 14, 2020 you've earned yourself a FREE 5K spot in any of the live races. (Please note that running the Turkey Trot last year does not qualify for a free entry.)
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, live or virtual.
