  • Friday at Century II from 11-8
  • Saturday at Century II beginning at 6:30am
The 10 mile will start at 7:45 am with the 2 mile starting at 8 am and kids 250’ Tiny Turkey Trot starting at 10 am. 
The start/finish line of all the races is on Douglas just in front of Century II. In the occurrence of lightning, the races will be delayed 30 minutes from the last visible lightning strike. Please listen for any announcements on race day.
 
Century II does have indoor restrooms and we will also have portable toilets just outside the building on Kennedy Plaza.
 
There will be pace signs held by volunteers at the start. To decrease the amount of congestion on the course, please line up according to your projected pace for the run. The race is chip timed and so your time will start when you cross the starting line. Be sure to wear your bib on your chest on the outermost layer of clothing to ensure the most accurate time possible.
 
Please run safely, listen to the directions of course marshals and police, thank the volunteers, and have fun! The course will be marked with directional arrows and cones at the turns. There will be a lead bike and volunteers along the course. 
 
At the finish, be sure to smile, cheer for yourself and everyone around you, and enjoy the morning! There will be a photographer at the finish line to capture your accomplishment. Photos will be available on the Wichita Turkey Trot Facebook page following the race.
 
The 10 mile and the 2 mile are both USATF Certified and record eligible (KS16045KH and KS17018TJD). Times will be sent to the Kansas Road Running Records after the race. Please note that on a certified course, a GPS watch will read long. This is due to the certification process and the procedures that are followed. To pace yourself accurately, please refer to the mile marker signs along the course.
 
There will be water stations along the course. The 10 mile will have five stations at approximately mile 1.9, 4.2, 6.5, 7.7, and 9.2. The 2 mile will have one water station at mile 1.2. 

**Covid-19 Backup Plan**

We do understand that local and state guidelines could change at any moment due to the current pandemic.  If we are unable to host the event under normal conditions at Century II, we will plan on hosting a similar event to the 2020 version near the Water Works parking lot at Seneca and Museum Blvd, across the street from the Mid-America All-Indian Museum.  We hope we don't have to make this change, but want everyone to be aware of what we plan on doing if stricter guidelines are in place.
