St. Bernadette's 13th Annual Turkey Trot will be held...IN-PERSON with the option to participate VIRTUALLY!  We hope our familiar faces will come out to support this community event and that some new faces will join us in virtual format from anywhere you live! As always, our commemorative 2021 Turkey Trot t-shirts will be issued to registered participants (must register by 11/5/2021 to guarantee a shirt for your family). As in previous years, we have partnered with the experts at Bryn Mawr Racing and will again use RaceJoy, a live running application to ensure a successful virtual run for those who choose that option. We look forward to celebrating this event and our amazing participants via our social media pages! 

Those with the fastest time in their age group for the In-Person 5k race will also receive a Turkey Trot medal! 

We look forward to celebrating this event with those that can make it as well as our amazing Bernie's supporters via our social media pages. Be sure to use the hashtag #berniesturkeytrot
