Kalamazoo Area Runner's Turkey Trot gives participants the opportunity to enjoy a race with their loved ones while working off the leftovers from Thanksgiving dinner. The Turkey Trot 5k Time Prediction Run is a holiday tradition and a perfect way to celebrate Thanksgiving while financially supporting the Kalamazoo Area Runners.
Just like most of 2020 Turkey Trot this year will look very different than years past, but will carry on the same fun running traditions you are used to. This year the event will take place the Saturday after Thanksgiving (November 28th). and we will be running off the leftovers at a new location – The Celery Flats!
Celery Flats offers a paved trails with beautiful scenery as participants enjoy their 5k. This is a timed prediction run and awards are distributed to the top 10, based on the closest predicted to actual time. Awards will also be given to overall male and female open and masters winners. No watches or other devices to track time, bicycles, dogs, or strollers are permitted in this unique event. No refunds or Transfers. Cut-off finish time to be included in official results is 50 minutes. We will be following COVID guidelines that will be listed below, more information will be sent our with our health and safety rules and regulations in the coming weeks. We do ask you wear your mask when getting ready to start, and maintain 6 feet social distancing.

• All Participants will have to sign up for a time frame (corral) when they would to start their run. Each corral only allows 40 participants.
• MASKS ARE REQUIRED!! Masks are required in the starting area, refreshment tables, restrooms, and when you cross the finish line. We also ask for you to wear one if you are within 6ft with another group. We would like everyone to practice social distancing during our event.
