Richmond Road Runners Club and the race's sponsor Wegmans hosted the 42nd running of Richmond's Turkey Trot 10K on Thanksgiving morning 2019. Thank you to all who joined us for a challenging 10K road race and the kids' fun run in and around the University of Richmond. This running-in-Richmond tradition regularly sells out its limit of 1,600 participants.
Registration for the 2020 race will open in September 2020. Until then, all details are tentative and subject to change.
This is a hilly and challenging 10K course that loops around the campus of the University of Richmond and neighboring streets. About a ½-mile of the course is on the trail by Westhampton Lake (about 2.5 miles into the race). The trail section is narrow: slower runners and walkers need to be prepared to yield to faster runners passing you and faster runners need to be alert for other runners slowing as they navigate the trail.
This is a walker-friendly event. Walkers should be able to complete the 6.2-mile course in under 2 hours (19 minutes per mile pace). We do ask you to place yourself toward the rear of the starting corral.
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR SAFETY. SECTIONS OF THE COURSE WILL BE OPEN TO VEHICULAR TRAFFIC. BE ALERT, WATCH FOR TRAFFIC AND PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR FELLOW RUNNERS, COURSE MARSHALS, AND POLICE.
This is a road race conducted under the rules of USATF and RRCA. In consideration of the safety of all participants, the following are not allowed on the course during the race: baby joggers, baby strollers, headphones, animals on or off leash, skateboards, inline or roller skates, or bicycles. The use of personal music devices is strongly discouraged at this race. To enjoy all that our race has to offer and for the safety of all participants, RRRC encourages a headphone-free environment during the running of the Wegmans Turkey Trot 10K.
Water stops will be available approximately every two miles on the 10K course. Sports drinks, water and snacks will be provided after the 10K race.
Course records were set by Silas Frantz (men: 31:18, 2015) and Rena Chesser (women: 36:44, 2011).
