Description

The 12th Annual Up North Media Traverse City Turkey Trot 5K & 5 Mile is a family favorite! We start Thanksgiving day off right with two different race distances; a 5K and a 5 mile, to promote healthy lifestyles as well as give back to local charities. All runners receive a commemorative long-sleeve Turkey Trot t-shirt (60/40 blend) with registration. Invite the whole family to participate in this one-of-a-kind event starting at St. Francis High School in Traverse City, MI. 

The Up North Media Traverse City Turkey Trot has contributed more than $100,000 to many great local area causes over the past 12 years. This year's race will benefit TART Trails Boardman Lake Loop Project and local youth teams/organizations. Come join us to continue your family tradition or start a new one while supporting your community!

Children under the age of 3 in a stroller are free (but will not receive a t-shirt). Dogs are also free!
