Thanksgiving tradition is offered on a limited basis this year due tp Covid-19 restrictions. We regret there is no mile race this year. There are two options for the 10K Turkey Trot held on Nov 26th:
**A 10K at Dismal Swamp Canal Trail Park in Chesapeake limited to 220 participants (approx 10% of our normal field) with one wave at 8.00am and another at 9.15 on Thursday, November 26th - Thanksgiving Day. Those assigned (based on predicted times) to the 8:00 am are committing to finish the 6.2 mile race in an hour or less as the course and finish line will close at 9.00 as we set up for the 9.15 wave. The 9.15 wave will have an hour and a half to complete the race.
