Family-friendly 5K and 5 mile run/walk on Thanksgiving morning
The 10th Annual Up North Media Turkey Trot presented by 4Front Credit Union is a great way to spend time with friends and family before your Thanksgiving celebration.
This year will mark the 10th Anniversary for the “U.S. Postal Service” of family fun runs. In the history of Traverse City’s Turkey Trot we’ve seen nearly 200,000 people cross the finish line and we can’t wait to welcome another group of old and new friends to join us once more on Thanksgiving morning for this zany 5k and 5 mile run.
We credit the event’s longevity to its family appeal and its capacity to deliver a better experience year after year, based upon participant feedback. This year’s race features three significant enhancements predicated upon runner requests:
• Reduced congestion and enhanced runner flexibility.
A slightly adjusted course route will alleviate congestion and allow faster runners the opportunity to get ahead of the pack. The new course will start and finish just outside St. Francis High School on 11th Street. Both the 5k and 5-mile race routes run through downtown Traverse City, before finishing on 11th Street. The official course map will be available online within the next few weeks.
• Canine family members welcome!
The Turkey Trot is now again a dog-friendly event! The new course starts and finishes outside St. Francis High School, which means participants can run with their dogs again! The previous start/finish arrangement at Thirlby Field was unable to accommodate pets within the stadium or on the playing surface.
• Stay warmer… longer.
Packet pick-up – both the evening before and day-of – will now be held in the cozy confines of St. Francis High School gymnasium, ensuring families can remain out of inclement weather for as long as possible if Mother Nature isn’t as cooperative as we’d like. The always entertaining evening before activities will also be staged in the gymnasium, along with tasty edibles. Please note that we cannot accommodate four-legged friends (that’s code for “dogs”) inside the school.
