Turkey Trot

Introducing the best Turkey Trot yet! There's no better way to do a Turkey Trot than as a virtual race - especially in 2020!

This year though, instead of having the traditional virtual race format (where all participants are doing OUR virtual race), we've flipped the script so that YOU can do your own race on your own time.

Because items will ship before Thanksgiving, quantities are limited.

REGISTER NOW before the price increase or we sell out!

How This Works

Simply choose how many participants you will have at your race and we'll take care of the rest. Everyone will get their own shirt, medal and keepsake bib so you can do your own thing!

Plus we've been able to trim the costs, so instead of our standard pricing, one person can sign up for just $45! AND each additional participant is even less than that!!

Race Day: Thanksgiving Day – 11/26/20 (or whenever)

Free Neck Gaiter Deadline: Available to the first 300 registrants Now just $5!

Early Bird Registration Price Deadline: 9/12/20
Last Day To Register Before The Next Price Increase: 9/30/20

Registration Deadline: 10/25/20

Reporting Deadline: Reporting is not required for this event

Distance Options: There are not predetermined distance options. This is Your Race

Location: Wherever you want!

Cost: Only $45 for all 3 swag items! (Price increases to $50 after 9/30/20)

Tell Me More

Believe it or not, Thanksgiving is just around the corner. While most “official” turkey trots are being cancelled due to (the virus that shall not be named) we have come up with an option that can allow you to run your own Turkey Trot. You can even customize the shirt and bibs!

This is NOT a virtual race. We are taking orders now for shirts, bibs and medals, and will ship them all out to you in time for Turkey Day. You can host your own socially distanced Turkey Trot with you and your family! No need to report your time, no need to wait for several packages. Just sign up, and we’ll get everything in the mail to you!

Here's the thing, shirts and bibs are relatively quick to produce, but in order to get medals here in time for the race you MUST place your order by September 12. We will over-order a little, but if you wait, there is no guarantee you can have your medals in time for race day. If you register after September 12, the registration form will make it clear if there are no more medals available.

This event is perfect for you regardless if it’s just going to be you, your household, or even if you have a dozen loved-ones visiting. The more you order, the more of a discount you get! Each registration gets their own medal, shirt and bib. PLUS you have the option to customize your shirt to say whatever you want!

"Stanley Family Turkey Trot"
"Will Run For Food Turkey Trot"
"I can’t believe I am running this Turkey Trot"
"Brynlee’s First Turkey Trot"

These shirts are printed on demand, customize at will!
