Description
Gobble Gobble...It's Turkey Trot time & we'd love for you to run with us!   Just like the name, Get Basted;  This will be the "2nd helpings" of our Turkey Trots!
We are THANKFUL for YOU so for 2020, we are letting EVERYONE run for FREE!!  We know that most everyone has lost some registration fees on races (not necessarily with us), and may have had some financial struggles as well due to the pandemic.  So to help everyone stay active & help out in our way, we're offering our Turkey Trots for FREE in 2020.

Due to COVID-19, we will only have the 5K Distance LIVE on Race Day.  All distances will be available Virtual.

Event will be electronically-timed & capped.  

Two weeks before Thanksgiving in 2011 we decided that we wanted to give back to all the participants who came out to race with us over the course of the year. Thanksgiving morning seemed to be the perfect time, and giving them a FREE race would be the perfect way to say Thanks! We're continuing that tradition...If you've crossed under our finish line in any race from Dec. 1, 2019 - Nov. 14, 2020 you've earned yourself a FREE 5K spot in any of the live races. (Please note that running the Turkey Trot last year does not qualify for a free entry.)

New for 2020
5K distance only for live events
Virtual 5K, 10K, 15K, or Half Marathon available for only $17.
Swag available for purchase:  Awesome Shirts $15, Hoodies $20 & Finisher Cards available for just $7!

Everything will be the same...but we're letting you race on Sunday, November 22 in Cumming, GA if you want to.

THAT'S THIS RACE YOU ARE ABOUT TO REGISTER FOR!

*If you are feeling sick, please stay home.  Face coverings will be needed for Packet Pickup, Check-in & Race Start; they are not required while running.  We ask you not to congregate and to maintain a safe distance from each other accordingly.
