2021 YOUR Turkey Trot

Gather your friends and family and step up to the plate! This year it's the battle of the side dishes. 

We're not trying to ruffle any feathers, but when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner the real stars of the show are the sides. We all know one side does not suit all so you get to decide which popular side dish is superior. The name of the game this year is sides, and everyone gets to decide which is the best. On your medal, slide your ribbon to show which side is superior and make your Thanksgiving plate on your race bib with stickers from your sticker sheet. 

Making it a family affair is easier than ever with discounts for multi-person registration and single shipment delivery.

What is Operation Hat Trick?

This year, we're partnering with Operation Hat Trick and donating a portion of each registration to the organization. Operation Hat Trick brings awareness and supports the recovery of wounded service members. Their mission statement says it all: 

"Operation Hat Trick generates awareness and support for the recovery of wounded service members and veterans through the sale of OHT branded merchandise and products, proceeds of which are donated to selected organizations that fulfill the OHT mission"

OHT is dedicated to American service members as they recover from the visible and invisible wounds of war. We help them move past the traumas of battle so they can focus on their lives and families at home."

Operation Hat Trick is dedicated to Nate Hardy and Mike Koch, two Navy SEALs who trained together, fought together and died together on Feb 4, 2008. Nate and Mike are buried side-by-side in Arlington National Cemetery.

Registration Deadline & Race Day

Registration will be open as long as swag remains available. You're not required to report your finish time to receive your medal(s). Swag items ship together in one package and will arrive by Thanksgiving.

Medals & Shipping

You do not have to report your time to receive your medal. Those that register by the deadlines above will receive their medals before Thanksgiving. For those that register after the deadline, you'll receive your medal and swag after Thanksgiving.

NOTE: Those that register October 18 or later are in the "Late Registration" period and will not receive their swag until mid-December.

Shirts & Bibs & SHIPPING

Shirts and bibs are printed specifically for each participant. Shirts and bibs ship regardless of whether your distance is reported. If you register by October 17, 2021, your shirt will ship so it can be delivered by Thanksgiving Day.

If you register after October 17, 2021, your shirt will not be ordered to be printed until after 11/28 and will ship by 12/24/2021.

Note: Due to manufacturing and international shipping constraints, if the color of the shirt you select is out of stock, the next closest color will automatically be substituted for you. 


You don't have to report a finish time for this race. Just have fun with your family and friends!


Results are just for fun, but will be listed here.
