    The Turkey Trot offer two events – a 5 mile run and a 2 mile walk and is open to everyone of all ages and abilities. This event is meant to be fun for the whole family, not just seasoned athletes. The Turkey Trot is perfect for anyone who wants to kick off Thanksgiving Day with a bit of exercise and a lot of fun! New this year- the Dog Jog, a separate group just for dogs and their humans. The Turkey Trot benefits the Boys & Girls Club and YMCA in communities Festival serves. Both of those organizations provide volunteers in return for monetary proceeds. In the past five years, the Turkey Trot has donated more than $681,000!
  • DOGS!
    NEW in 2013- The Dog Jog!
    ALL participants with dogs will start at approximately 8:15am or after all other participants have crossed the starting line. Dogs are NOT allowed on the 5 mile course so this is a 2 mile walk only. Strollers and people without dogs are also allowed in this wave. (Service dogs are the only exception) . Dogs do not need to be registered but we will have bandanas available for $5 cash or check at packet pick up and on race day if your pooch wants to dress up for the Trot!
