Turkey Trot consists of a 6 Mile Run and a 2 Mile Fun walk/run for people who just want to enjoy the event. In addition, right before the Trot starts, children ages eight and under may participate in the free Diestelhorst Dash. At 7:45am, children will need to be ready and lined up on the south side of the bridge while parents wait on the other side.
Whether you are a serious runner or just want to get out with the children and enjoy a comfortable walk, this walk/run is for everyone from a child on a stroller, seriously competitive runners to grandparents who simply want to get out and be part of the event.
