Listed as one of the 30 Best Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trots in America, the Charlotte Turkey Trot has been a local family tradition for the past 32 years.
Starting and finishing at the SouthPark Mall, the largest road race (9,000+ total participants) in North Carolina is a homecoming destination for extended families, old classmates, and a place to meet and celebrate with neighbors. The community comes together to kick-off the holiday season with a healthy morning run/walk before heading home to celebrate Thanksgiving with food and family.
Race founders Danny and Lesa White cultivated the family and community atmosphere of the Charlotte Turkey Trot for 31 years and are responsible for building a great local tradition. In 2020 the event transitioned to a new local ownership team that (despite the challenges of COVID-19) built on their efforts by continuing the tradition with a successful “virtual” Turkey Trot event featuring 1,500 participants.
In 2021 we are committed to returning to a live event experience on Thanksgiving Day morning. And, once again, we are partnering with Samaritan’s Feet to provide shoes for underprivileged children in the region.
We look forward to seeing you all out there this Thanksgiving Day.
