Early Start Times: 8:30 AM and 8:45 AM
4 x 2 Mile Run/Walk Relay = 8
Miles Total (approx)
4 person team (each person will
complete a 2 Mile Loop)
This is a road event.
As with most road events, the actual distance may vary.
Each Team will run the same distance and therefore will be fair.
Teams composed of
GOBBLERS: 4 Men, HENS: 4 Women, CO-ED: Any mixture of Gobblers and Hens, MASTERS: All members age 40 or older, JENNYS & JAKES: Boys and Girls (age 16 or younger), FAMILY: All members must be related
The 2014 event is limited to 150 teams
The limit is based on the small size of the exchange zone. Any more teams would make it difficult to manage.
We approached capacity last year, please register early
$48.00 per team
The first 100 teams to register will receive a pair of our Turkey Trot Hi-Tech
Running Socks for each team member (sponsored by Bandanna Run/Walk)
The Turkey Trot is an annual race
for 4 person relay teams. Each person completes a 2 mile loop through Ann
Morrison Park. The team closest to their predicted time wins a turkey for
each team member. The start/finish location is at the east end of Ann Morrison

Four turkeys will be awarded to the team closest to their predicted time in each division.
Must be present at the awards ceremony to receive the Turkey. If the winning teams are not present, the turkeys will be awarded to the next place team that is present.
(We do not have storage for the frozen turkeys and must distribute them at the awards ceremony)
Others prizes will be given away.
"Winning team" is the team closest to their predicted time. Not necessarily the first team to finish!
Due to the nature of the
race, no time pieces will allowed on or around the course. Time keeping by
anyone but race officials will result in disqualification of that team.
Come and enjoy the fun!
