*We have currently sold out of all the shirts that were ordered. You can still register for the race, and we have reduced the price to reflect this. The current price to run with no shirt is $20/$15 for this Thanksgiving Tradition**  Welcome to the 2020 Chase the Turkey 5k on Thanksgiving morning in Kingsport, TN. We still have much to be Thankful for.    Yes, we are hosting a "live, in person" running event.  Yes, there will be requirements and steps that we must take that will be different than in years' past.  These steps will, by now, seem normal to you. Yes, social distancing will be suggested and encouraged. Yes, masks will be suggested and encouraged while around socializing and picking up packets...but not while running. Yes, there will still be a decent-size crowd of people. While we will not have the "social distancing police" on site, we do ask that each person be accountable for themselves and their party.  One thing is for sure, we have learned to respect each person's opinion during this pandemic. We certainly respect all as well.  That being said, if being in and around a crowd of people who are encouraged to practice proper "pandemic protocol" upsets or worries you, then perhaps this year isn't your year to participate. We totally understand. We love and respect that decision, and can't wait to see you next year! For those of you that choose to sign up on your own freewill and decision, we hope you enjoy this Thanksgiving Tradition.

Adults 19+ register for $30. Adults and students 18 and under are $20. Children 4 and under are free, with no shirt. We have all seen how laws and mandates change very rapidly within a state or municipality, which could require the race to be canceled at any time due to no fault of ours.  So for that reason, or weather related or other circumstances,  no refunds can be offered or given.

Packet pick up will be at the race site on Thursday starting at 7:00am. THERE WILL BE NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION THIS YEAR.  There will be no early packet pickup.
