Thu November 26, 2020 Beaver, PA 15009 US Directions

Due to the rise in cases of COVID-19 and recommendations from the PA Dept of Health along with the Beaver Area School District, we will be making this year's Bobcats Turkey Trot FULLY VIRTUAL for all runners and there will be NO in person race this year.  While this deeply saddens our organization with these recommendations, we believe it's best not to host a race with a large in person gathering.

What does that mean if you have already signed up?

There's nothing you need to do. All participants for both the Timed and Untimed events will automatically be moved to the virtual event.

Will I still get my race bag and shirt?

YES, absolutely! We feel this year's race bag is one of our best yet.  You can still pick up your bag (and shirt if you signed up prior to the deadline) on Wednesday, November 25th, between 5-7PM at the Pavilion next to the Beaver Area High School Tennis Courts. 
Address: 511 Buffalo St, Beaver, PA 15009

Can I still register for the Virtual Race?

Yes, registration will remain open through Wednesday, November 25th, at noon for the virtual option. This option will still guarantee you a race bag. Shirts are no longer available.

Virtual Race Results

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own, and report your results. There will be no awards or prizes for the results, just simply a fun way to compete against others. Follow this link to learn more how to submit your results:

Awards/Giveaways this Year

Starting on Sunday, November 25th, we will be giving away a $25 gift card from Dick's Sporting Goods each day until Thanksgiving.  On Thanksgiving morning, we will award one lucky winner with a $75 gift card to Dick's Sporting Goods. All registered participants will be entered in this drawing.  If you aren't signed up yet, the sooner you sign up, the more chances you have to win.

Can I cancel my race registration?

We will be adjusting our no refund policy this year and will offer refunds to anyone not interested in Virtual only option. To cancel your race, please go to our website,, by Saturday, November 21st at 11:59PM.  If you cancel your registration, you will not be eligible to receive your race bag and shirt.  We understand and apologize for last minute change under the current circumstances, but hope that you will still stay with us in the Virtual Option. All refunds will be processed on or around November 27th in the original form of payment used.
