What is the World’s Best Turkey Trot? Given all of the events that have unfortunately been canceled in 2020, the World’s Best Turkey Trot was created to help fill the void for numerous Thanksgiving weekend events that bring families and friends together. All participants will be able to design their own custom bib to wear while they run and shortly after we’ll ship the race kit with t-shirt (or long sleeve shirt) finisher medal and samples from our sponsors including Therapist Preferred, Reed's and Ultima.
Where can I run? Anywhere you want! You can choose your distance (5k or 10K) and your course. Rolling hills, treadmill, local park, high school track… it's all up to you! Children under 14 years old can also choose to run the 1M Kids Fun Run. Make it a family event and even bring the dog if you want. Special prizes will be awarded for the “Best Race Route”, “Best Costume” & "Best Race Photo Including a Dog" so let your creativity shine.
What items are included in the World’s Best Turkey Trot race kit? When will we receive the kit? Our inaugural race T-Shirt (or long sleeve shirt if you choose to upgrade), the World’s Best Turkey Trot finisher medal and product samples from our sponsors. You will also receive a digital finisher certificate once you upload your results. Race Kits will be sent out after the race weekend.
How do I create or join a team? Forming a team is a great way to bring people together on the virtual leaderboard. There is no additional fee to start a team and no minimum amount of runners. To create a new team, simply click "Create A Team" at registration and you will be the "Captain". Click "Join A Team" and use the drop down button to find the team you want to join once your registration process is complete.
