The 22nd annual Perry Wellington 4.5M Turkey Trot Race consists of a rolling 4.5 mile run, flat 2 mile run and 2 mile walk.  One of our most popular family events for locals and those visiting from out of town.

PLEASE REGISTER EARLY as t-shirts will be provided to the first 500 registered racers.  Online registration closes at 11:00am on Friday, November 25.

Racers must wear race number to show that you are a race participant. You will have a certain color bib pertaining to what race you are participating in.  If you want to change races, you may do so by calling the Blair Regional YMCA at 695-4467 before race day. NO CHANGES ON RACE DAY!  If you lose your bib or need a new one issued, for any reason, there will be a $5 fee assessed. For safety reasons, headsets of any kind and pets are not permitted.

NO race registration reimbursements. Remember, if you cannot make it to the event, your registration fee is going towards a good cause.     

4.5 Mile Run:

The 4.5m course will start at the YMCA and run up Brush Mountain Road and take the scenic route of Hollidaysburg. The last part of the run will make a right onto Hart Street from N. Montgomery Street instead of going straight to turn on E. First Street. There will be a road marshal to help direct runners. Start/Finish will be at the old main entrance to the YMCA.

2 Mile Run/Walk:

The 2 Mile course is the same as previous years.  This is as flat of a course as you can get!  2 Mile runners will be facing the opposite direction of the 4.5 Mile runners.  You will start 1 minute ahead of the walkers.  Make sure you stand in front of the walkers, they will have a different color bib number on. Walkers will be positioned behind the 2 Mile Runners and start 1 minute behind.  Walkers are absolutely not allowed to run at any time! You will have a different color bib on than the runners.  Road marshals will ask you to walk if you are seen running.  If you would like to run/walk, sign up for the 2 Mile Run as you are more than welcome to run/walk!

Race packets will be available for pick up Friday, November 25th from 5am to 9pm at the Blair Regional YMCA. You may also pick-up your packet on race day here as well.
