About This Event
The Thompson Turkey Trot started in 2008. It is a cross country 5K that incorporates trails, fire roads and disused paved roads through the beautiful West Thompson Lake Recreation area. The event benefits the TEEG Holiday Food Bank, Thompson Trails, Parks and Playgrounds. The event will be chip timed again for 2018.
WINY (1350 AM) will provide live coverage from the event.
Interested in participating and supporting a great cause, but are unable to make it on November 11th? Consider being a virtual runner! Virtual runners can register for the event, run 5k at their convenience and location, and then log their time with Racewire.
**Please note that if you do choose to be a virtual runner, you will not be able to qualify for any of the day of awards, or receive a t-shirt. Registration fee is $25.
