The Downtown Jasper, IN 2020 Turkey Trot 5K Run/Walk will be held on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov 26 at 8:00am EST. 

The race will begin at the River Centre/FitFuel Nutrition and end at Downtown Fitness & Running.  Included in your registration is chip bib timing by To The Finish LLC, a long sleeve Brooks shirt guaranteed if registered by Friday, Nov 13, and a digital swag bag.

There will be absolutely no race day sign ups for this race!!!   

1. There won't be race day registration. We are very close to full and we want to keep numbers as low as possible.
2. We must put in place a wave start of 50 people every 5 minutes to avoid gatherings of more than 50 people. You will receive an email on Monday explaining the   
     process in detail and what wave you will be in. Don't worry, if you would happen to get in a different wave than your friends or family it will be an easy fix, but you have
     to let me know so I can adjust it.
3. We won't be able to have our warmup by Ashley at FitFuel Nutrition
     to avoid gathering more than 50 people, but we will have Ty Hunter with Boogie Tunes there to get you going as the race starts!
4. We won't have final race results until possibly 9:40am due to the wave start, but we will post results on our page and you can pick up your medal at Downtown             
     Fitness  & Running, or I will deliver it to your mailbox or front porch if you are in Jasper, or I'll mail it if you live far away.

Please know we are doing everything we can to keep this race going and safe. Thank you for your understanding.
It's a difficult year, but we will make the best of it.

COVID Guidelines

·        Registration will be capped at 250 participants with starting waves of 50 people every 5 minutes.  You will receive an email with details.

·        Participants must wear masks or face covering until race begins. Because it will be cold outside, participants can use neck gaiters, scarves, bandanas, and masks to cover nose and mouth until the start, then remove it around neck or in pockets during running/walking. Participants will be asked to again cover their nose and mouth after crossing the finish line.

·        No aid stations will be provided along the route. The course will be self-supported. Participants will be encouraged to bring their own reusable water bottle for personal hydration.

·        The race will be chip bib timed, so social distancing will be in place at the starting line because the bib doesn’t start recording the time until runner/walker crosses the timing mat, therefore no reason to crowd at the start line for take off.

·        The starting line is hosted by FitFuel Nutriton and River Centre. All current COVID guidelines will be followed when participants are in these places of business.

·        The finish line is hosted by Downtown Fitness & Running. Current business COVID procedures in place will be followed when inside business.

·        Awards will be posted on Downtown Fitness & Runnings facebook page by 10:00am.  You can pick your medal up at Downtown Fitness & Running 331 Mill Street in Jasper or if you live in Jasper I will deliver to your mailbox, or mail it if you live far away.

·        All volunteers, directors, and spectators must wear masks at all times and social distance when possible.
