Description

Start Thanksgiving Day off on the right foot at the Lynchburg Turkey Trot for HumanKind sponsored by Wells Fargo. Before the big games, the big meal, the parades and the pies, why not get in a little exercise with a few thousand neighbors? It’s an event the whole family will enjoy! If you’ve never been before, we encourage you to join us this Thanksgiving and make it a family tradition!

You’ll also be giving “thanks” by helping individuals and families throughout our community! Proceeds from this race benefit the programs of HumanKind, which provide a broad range of services that foster the social, mental and financial well-being of families and individuals. With a focus on empowering people of all backgrounds and abilities, HumanKind helps equip people to build better lives for themselves and their families. These programs serve thousands of people in Lynchburg and across Virginia each year!

Your Turkey Trot registration guarantees you a spot at our start line. Entries are non-refundable and non-transferable. Entry fees cannot be applied to future races or events and/or transferred to another person.
