Everyone who registers receives an awesome die-cast medal and personalized bib! Your Turkey Trot can officially take place anytime, anywhere on Thursday, November 27th (Thanksgiving Day). Many of you may have local Turkey Trots going on in your area - these are ideal platforms, or you can coordinate a short distance run with some of your friends. You can even participate virtually! A virtual run means you can run (or walk) the distance you choose (5K, 10K, even noK) at your own location. It’s that easy! You don’t even have to run or walk to receive your medal and bib (but we certainly hope you do). In order to receive your medal and personalized bib, please register by 11/26/14.
