In its 12th year, Burn off the Bird is a family tradition in the Phoenixville region. Bring out your family, extended family and friends for a 5K Race on the scenic Schuylkill River Trail, or a virtual 5K at the location of your choosing. This event guarantees to help you digest that Thanksgiving Meal!

Race Options:

We have two registration options for you to pick from:

  • 5K Registration – Each 5K registration comes with a premium T-shirt and custom medal if registered before November 1st!
  • Virtual 5K Registration - You receive all the swag of the in-person 5K registration, but get to avoid the crowd and run at the location of your choosing!


The race starts and ends at Renaissance Academy's parking lot in Phoenixville, PA. This year, day-of registration and bib pickup will be 100% outdoors to ensure the safety of our participants and volunteers.
