The Festival Foods Turkey Trot will take place on Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 2013.
The Turkey Trot offers two events – a five mile run and a two mile walk – to accommodate participants of all ages and abilities. 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. New this year- 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.
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!
