The Running of the Turkeys 5k is your Thanksgiving Day tradition at Greensboro's Country Park! All participants get a cool Turkey Hat! 5k runners get an awesome long sleeve t-shirt. Bring the whole family and the pups. Pet-friendly and 5k have overall awards for dogs! Strollers are welcome!

The 5k is a chip-timed event with overall awards for Male and Female and age groups: 9 and under, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80+ AND first place dog. Please check to see if you won an award after the race. AWARDS WILL NOT BE MAILED!

Our family event is an untimed loop (1.7 miles) around Country Park. You can run, walk or skip but this is definitely a great time to give the pooch a good walk or run on Thanksgiving morning. We will have something special for the first dog finisher. 

There will be great snacks like you have come to expect from Junction 311 plus hot beverages for all!
