10TH ANNUAL TURKEY TROT 5K: Sponsored by Mooresville Ford!

Join us for our 10th Annual Turkey Trot to end childhood poverty! Celebrate a healthy holiday and help us fight poverty for local families by meeting their basic needs and providing them the skills, tools, and support to rise out of poverty! All proceeds support the Mooresville Area Christian Mission serving over 3,000+ local individuals in need.

Due to COVID, we will be offering a virtual race through the RaceJoy app. Race Joy allows you to compete in real-time! No matter the "distance" we hope you'll bring your family together to fight childhood poverty! Virtual participants will still receive "swag" listed below. It can be picked up in person during packet pickup dates/times at Charlotte Running Company (located in Mooresville) or be mailed for an $8 fee. 

How Does our virtual Turkey Trot work exactly? There are two options:

  1. RUN ANYWHERE - Run on your own anywhere to complete a 5K.  
  2. RUN OUR COURSE - Download the app "RaceJoy" and it will guide you along our course.
