Thanksgiving Day * Thursday, November 26, 2020

WAKE... RUN.... FEAST!  Join us for the VIRTUAL University City Turkey Trot.... the 7th year for this awesome event in University City. We would love to gather in person and see familiar faces and new ones, but we are living during a pandemic and current conditions do not allow for that.

So, at 8AM on Thanksgiving Day, you will not be at the University City Turkey Trot start line with hundreds of people, but you can be anywhere in the world you choose for our VIRTUAL University City Turkey Trot. And get this, it doesn't even have to be 8AM! Sleep in until you want and run or walk the race when you want! It's that simple this year. Gather the family, the dog, the cat, and get out there!

Our awesome Turkey t-shirt and the medal everyone loves will be mailed to the address provided at registration. We will make every attempt to mail these items prior to Thanksgiving Day so that you have them.  There are two deadlines to keep in mind: If you want to guarantee you get a medal along with the t-shirt, register by October 15th. If you are fine without the medal, but want to guarantee a t-shirt only, register by November 14th.

It is our hope to bring this race back as the awesome IN PERSON event all of you have supported over the last six years. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and stay safe everyone! Your VIRTUAL race registration supports, Sickle Cell Partners of the Carolinas, a non-profit that supports patients and families affected by sickle cell disease, a hereditary illness.

Date & Time: 
Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 26, 2020 at ANYTIME YOU WANT TO COMPLETE THE WALK OR RUN.
