31st Annual Sea Rim Striders' 2021 Turkey Trot 5K/10K/Kids K
The Sea Rim Striders Run Club is an all-volunteer incorporated 501(c)3 Non Profit Organization that has been in existence since the 1970's! We support, encourage, and promote running and walking at all levels to increase health and fitness awareness, as well as giving back to our community.
Everything we do throughout the year is free and open to the public, except the Turkey Trot and Jingle Bell events, as they are our main fundraisers for the year.
We work hard behind the scenes to bring you this awesome Annual Holiday race. Join us as we host this holiday tradition, right here in Beaumont, Texas at The Event Centre on Thanksgiving Morning!
Each year, SRS chooses a local Non Profit charity to feature and give back to.
This year, the Turkey Trot is Benefiting the 501(c)3 Non-Profit L.I.F.E - Learning in a Family Environment.

EVENT ALTERATIONS FOR 2021
Due to ongoing COVID conditions, there are a few changes for this year's Turkey Trot to keep social distance, with trying to keep it as normal as possible.
No big opening ceremony; each wave will have a short announcement/national anthem/prayer before their wave starts
Wave participants to arrive at Race Site no earlier than 15 minutes before their scheduled wave.
No physical awards, no awards ceremony. Masters/Overall/Course record winners will still get a free entry into 2022 Turkey Trot.
Award placements will be finalized after the last wave is completed, and will be posted on our website and on Social Media announcement.
Runners are asked to leave shortly after finishing, to allow the flow of runners in and out to be smooth.
Limiting online regirations to 500 5K/10K runners. -- EDIT: 11/18/21 due to improving COVID conditions, we have added (200) registration spots: 100 to the last 10K wave, and (100) to the last 5K wave.
Registrations will be strictly online, unless otherwise announced.
Due to getting a late start on approving this event to be in-person, as well as shirt supply issues, shirts are NOT a part of registration, as we could not guarantee them to participants this year. We do have them for purchase at $10 each, cash/check only. Shirts will be sold from 11am on 11/24 Packet Pickup day, until 11am on 11/25 Race Day.
A big THANK YOU shout-out to Leslie Jordan Apparel for working diligently with us so we were able to get some shirts to provide to our racers this year!
