This is a drive-through packet pickup. You will remain in your vehicle. We encourage everyone to pick up their packet on this day to avoid the rush on race day. You may have someone pick up your packet for you. Please provide your race bib number when picking up your packet.
NOTE: This is not the location of the race start. The race start is across from Warwick High School.
This popular event is back for a full live race held on Thanksgiving Day. The out and back course is run on the scenic roads of Mariners' Museum Park. Race participation will be capped at 800. Race proceeds will benefit the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank. Your participation and optional donations will help those in need.
To guarantee a shirt in your size, sign up by November 9, 2023. The race does fill up and THERE IS NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION. RACE LIMIT IS 800 REGISTRANTS.
If you are unable to participate, please consider making a donation to the Foodbank or Feeding America at the link above.
Register 4 or more participants at the same time and receive $5 off per registrant.
We are again excited that Ferguson Enterprises and its employees from across the country will join us virtually and help achieve our fundraising goals. If you are a Ferguson employee, please visit https://runsignup.com/Race/VA/NewportNews/FergusonCaresTurkeyTrot to register.
Each participant that registers by November 1, 2023 will receive a long-sleeve, ring-spun soft cotton blend shirt in their requested size. Participants that register after November 1, 2023 will receive a shirt based upon size availability.
Unclaimed shirts will not be mailed.
Chip timing will be used to score the event. Your time will begin when you pass through the starting line sensors. The top ten overall male and female finishers will be determined by the gun time, not the chip time.
Preliminary results can be found here.

Since the vast majority of race costs are incurred prior to a race and are non-refundable, we do not issue refunds for the event.
In the event you are unable to participate, you have two options:
1) Defer your entry to next year's race. Deferrals will be required to pay for their shirt for next year's race.
2) Transfer your entry to another runner. This must be done by November 17, 2023.
