The Turkey Trot offers two events – a five mile run and a two mile walk – to accommodate participants of all ages and abilities. This year, the Green Bay Turkey Trot will host a 4 mile run instead of the regular 5 mile run.
Attendees enjoy the upbeat music, high quality long-sleeved t-shirts and free Festival Foods pumpkin pies at the finish line that they can take home and enjoy with their family. We will also have the Dog Jog, a separate group just for dogs and their humans. The Dog Jog will start at the back of the 2 mile event and will follow the 2 mile route.
The Turkey Trot benefits the Boys & Girls Club and YMCA in communities Festival Foods serves. Both of those organizations provide volunteers in return for monetary proceeds. In the past eight years, the Turkey Trot has donated more than $1,290,000!
