Description

💥COVID UPDATE as of TODAY…(TURKEY DAY, 11/26/20)…WE ARE ON AND CANNOT WAIT TO SEE EVERYONE!!💥
(Remember…skin is waterproof🙄)


😊
The BCTT is on. 
Race day is TODAY.

We are closely monitoring the increasing cases of COVID. 
We (Scoogie Events, Bucks County Parks & Rec. & New Britain Township) along with any new state guidelines that are put into place, will ALWAYS put the safety EVERYONE involved with this event FIRST(period).
THIS is our #1 priority and we take this responsibility VERY SERIOUSLY.
With that said, we will keep everyone updated via this website AND with emails as to if the Bucks County Turkey Trots will happen this year.
As is stands TODAY, we are a GO and looking forward to a very special event on Thanksgiving Day.

🦃VIRTUAL OPTION🦃
For those runners that have registered but DO NOT feel comfortable attending this event, we will be allowing folks run the Bucks County Turkey Trot VIRTUALLY and still get your swag!😊.

This means that for those of you that choose to run the event virtually (on your own time and a location that you chose), you will be able to come pick up your SWAG (t-shirt & 4” finisher’s medal) on Wednesday, November 25th from 2:30-4:30 at Sailor’s Point at Peace Valley Park. You will NOT have to get out of your vehicle, you will simply drive in and tell a Scoogie Events CREW member your name (or names of any friends you are picking up for) and a CREW member will bring your SWAG bag to you. (wearing a mask of course).
If you are unable to (or don’t feel comfortable with) coming to this pick-up option, you will also be able to pick up your SWAG bags at our next live event’s packet pick-up or on the actual race day. Should that date also not work for you, you can pick it up at the second live event we have. Note: swag bags will not be mailed.
Should the state mandate new guidelines that would preclude us from having this event, you will receive an email explaining next steps.

Stay tuned🙌 

🙌

(Both the WILD 5k & the MILD 5k start and end in the same location!)
And, don't let the name WILD 5k scare you...it's not too difficult at all. It has one 8% 1/3 of a mile long hill...the rest is flat😊.

As you most likely know, in normal years (when there’s not a pandemic) we have our 
Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot in North Wales.
We close down the US 202 Parkway for over 2000 runners!
But this year we had to get creative…
and that’s exactly what WE DID!
😃

Introducing a BRAND NEW TURKEY TROT where YOU GET TO CHOOSE 
your start time as well as what type of course you’d like to run!

🦃Start time choices🦃
Early Turkey start is 7:45 am! 
Late Turkey start is 9:45 am!

or

(This is a relatively flat 5k) 

😃To see the course routes, click HERE for our race homepage😃

You will receive an email the Saturday before the event with details regarding packet pick as well as race day details.
In the meantime, here are the GPS coordinates: VIEW IN GOOGLE MAPS

 

💥

💥TWO VERY IMPORTANT & TIME SENSITIVE NOTES ABOUT THIS EVENT💥


1. For safety reasons and park & state guidelines, we are limiting each 5k to ONLY 100 RUNNERS! This means that once 100 runners has been reached, the event will CLOSE and we simply cannot accept any new registrations. 

2. Should COVID gets worse over the weeks/months and we deem it to be unsafe to have this event, we will make the event a VIRTUAL event. There will be no refunds. Your swag (medal & t-shirt) will be held able to be picked -up a yet to be determined SWAG pick up.

🦃PACKET PICK-UP (PPU): 
Stress-free PPU😊

When: Wednesday, November 25th from 2:30-4:30 pm
Where: Sailor’s Point, Peace Valley Park (race start/finish)
You will simply follow the signs down towards the lake, a Scoogie Events CREW member then comes to your window, asks for the name of the packets you’re picking up and you’ll be on your way.
💥PPU IS VERY STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO AVOID LINES ON RACE MORNING💥
💥
This will exponentially decrease race day lines which will help comply with COVID guidelines!
💥

THIS NEEDS TO BE STATED AGAIN: 
PACKET PICK-UP IS VERY STRONGLY ENCOURAGED!
MANY OF OUR DEVOTED CREW MEMBERS & VOLUNTEERS ALSO RUN THESE EVENTS AND THEY NEED TIME TO PREPARE AS WELL!
PLEASE THINK OF THEM AND TRY VERY HARD TO COME TO PACKET PICK-UP THE DAY BEFORE (11/25)!


Plus, if you pick up your packets at packet pick-up, you don’t have to arrive so early on race morning. 
PPU is NOT mandatory but again, STRONGLY encouraged. 
You CAN pick up your friend’s packets (You must know their FULL name & DOB)
 
😊TIMING/AWARDS😊
Both 5k’s WILL BE TIMED & AWARDS will be given out!
But, this year there will be no awards ceremony. 
Winners will collect their awards and if desired can stand on the podiums, individually, for photos😊

 

😃RUN IN A HOLIDAY COSTUME!😃
(but you are not obligated to dress up)

You all know how hard that is for us...WE LOVE DOGS!! (hence our logo🐶)
    

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
THE COVID PROTOCOL GUIDELINES FOR THIS EVENT! 

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ EVERY PIECE OF INFORMATION BELOW BEFORE COMING ON THURSDAY!
🤸🏻‍♂️


💥#1: REGARDING SPECTATORS💥

DUE TO RESTRICTIONS SET FORTH BY THE STATE & LOCAL GOVERNMENTS WE ARE RESTRICTING THE TOTAL NUMBER OF PEOPLE AT THIS RACE!
THESE ARE RESTRICTIONS THAT WE MUST ABIDE BY.
THEREFOR, WE ARE ONLY ALLOWING REGISTERED RUNNERS TO ATTEND THE EVENT. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

💥#2: REGARDING YOUR SAFETY AND HAVING THIS EVENT SHOULD THINGS GET WORSE💥

WE WILL NOT HAVE THIS EVENT IF WE DON'T FEEL THAT IT IS A SAFE EVENT FOR EVERY SINGLE PERSON INVOLVED IN THE EVENT! 
If circumstances change for the worse in the next few days, we will change the event to virtual.


--------------------------------------------------------------------

 

💥#3: REGARDING HOW YOU FEEL PHYSICALLY &  EMOTIONALLY ON RACE MORNING💥

If you do not feel comfortable attending this event OR YOU HAVE A TEMPERATURE the morning of the event...
PLEASE DO NOT COME.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

💥#4: REGARDING WEARING A MASK💥

Absolutely everyone at the event will be required to wear a mask at all times EXCEPT WHEN YOU ARE RUNNING.
If you don't feel comfortable wearing a mask, please do not come. 
We do not enjoy wearing masks either...(especially when it's hot)
But, during these unprecedented times, we need to deal with it.
ALL runners will be able to take their masks off right before starting their run.
YOU MUST CARRY YOUR MASK WITH YOU AT ALL TIMES ON THE RUN (WEAR SOMETHING WITH POCKETS)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

💥#5 REGARDING TEMPERATURE CHECK💥


EVERYONE will need to have their temperature taken BEFORE they step foot onto the event grounds. (Temperatures will be taken by top of the line non-contact, one second Infrared thermometers). 
If you do not feel comfortable with this, please do not come.
Note: Taking one's temperature DOES NOT necessarily indicate a positive or negative.
It simply is just one of the many steps that we are taking to eliminate any possible unsafe situation.
But please understand that IF your temperature is too high when we check it, we will allow you to rest in your car where it's cooler and try it again. 
But, if it remains high upon your second check, you will not be allowed on the event grounds. 
If you see this as a possible problem, please do not come. 


---------------------------------------------------------------------

 

💥#6 REGARDING SOCIAL DISTANCING💥


WE NEED EVERYONE to consciously pay attention to SOCIAL DISTANCING from the second you step foot onto the venue until the time you leave.  
THIS VERY IMPORTANT SOCIAL DISTANCING DETAIL IS WHAT WILL MAKE THIS EVENT A SAFE EVENT FOR EVERYONE.
The 45 Scoogie Events CREW members and 25+ volunteers will be very busy at their specific detail making sure that they do their job to keep you SAFE.
They WILL NOT be checking for social distancing! That is what we would like YOU TO PLEASE DO.
 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------


 
WHY ARE WE ORGANIZING THIS EVENT: 

Because 2020 has been a very difficult year for so many of us and even though we are limited to such a small number of runners and it’s five times the amount of work to make this event happen, we feel that we need to give HOPE and spread some needed POSITIVITY to our faithful runners. 
And that’s EXACTLY what we plan on doing on November 26, 2020! 

Additionally, we LOVE Peace Valley Park and want to give back to them! 
They are this year’s race beneficiary and they will receive 100% of the donations generated from this event!


💥AGAIN, VERY IMPORTANT & TIME SENSITIVE NOTES ABOUT THIS EVENT💥

Again, if COVID gets worse over the weeks/months and we deem it to be unsafe to have this event, we will make the event a VIRTUAL event. There will be no refunds. Your swag (medal & t-shirt) will be held able to be picked -up a yet to be determined SWAG pick up.
