The Inaugural Running of the Turkeys 5k returns an annual tradition to 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 has overall awards for dogs!

The 5k is a chip-timed event with overall awards for Male and Female and age groups: 14 and under, 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.

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!
