About this event

The Five Star Turkey Trot is back for 2021~
If you crossed one of our Finish Lines from 12/20 - 11/19/2021, you qualify to run (1) in-person Turkey Trot for free! (See race details for more info.)

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, 2020 - Nov. 14, 2021 you've earned yourself ONE FREE 5K spot in any (1) 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 $21, live or virtual.

New for 2021
5K, 10K, 15K or Half Marathon Distances
Virtual 5K, 10K, 15K, or Half Marathon available for only $21.
Swag available for purchase: Awesome Shirts $15, Hoodies $20 & Finisher Cards available for just $7!
