All of the T-shirts and awards are in place.  However, due to the recent COVID 19 restrictions from the State of Michigan our 2020 Dowagiac Turkey Trot has been postponed and will now be conducted on Saturday, March 20, 2021.  At a later date complete details will be emailed to everyone now registered, posted at and on my website and Facebook page.  It is very important to keep everyone safe and your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.

I love this genuine all trail Turkey Trot course and I feel badly that this race must be postponed.  If you would like to preview the course I plan to again set up the course for everyone to enjoy starting this Saturday (FEB 20) and Sunday (FEB 21) from 8:00AM to 5:00PM.  The course will be well marked and both 5k and 10k maps are available on line or will be available at Rotary Park, a ½ mile south of Dowagiac Middle School on Riverside drive.  The maps will be in a box underneath the Welcome Sign at the children's playground.  Enjoy!  

T-shirts will be available at packet pickup March 20.  If you want to get your shirt early it can be picked up at Olympia Books 208 Front Street, Dowagiac from 9:00AM to 3:00PM Saturday and 9:00AM to 11:00AM on Sunday, February 20 and 21.
