Join us this year for the 13th Annual Up North Media Traverse City Turkey Trot presented by 4Front Credit Union! This race has been a place of joy, family, friends (furry ones too) and a place where memories and traditions are made. We are happy to announce we are carrying on the tradition in 2020!  We are offering a 5K in-person and a 5K virtual race option.

In-person: Our in-person option will follow our usual route through beautiful Traverse City and along our gorgeous bay. In order to help eliminate risk and keep our event COVID-19 free, we ask that you read the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) recommendations for the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 and abide by their recommendations:

Virtual event: Run/walk anytime between November 12th and November 26th. This option allows participants to run or walk anywhere in the world with family and/or friends and still receive our commemorative long sleeved t-shirt. We want to continue to make memories with you so we ask that you share your results, experiences, memories and photos with us on our facebook page! Dress up or not we would love to hear where you ran or walked and see your smiling faces!
