 ​The Story:

Two weeks before Thanksgiving in 2011 we decided that we wanted to give back to all the participants who came out to race with us over the course of the year. Thanksgiving morning seemed to be the perfect time, and giving them a FREE race would be the perfect way to say thanks. We're continuing that tradition...If you've crossed under our finish line in any race from Dec. 1, 2018  - Nov. 22, 2019 you've earned yourself a FREE spot in any of the races.

If you haven't crossed under our finish line this year...that's OK too...You can still come out and join's just $17.

We are conducting food drives at both the Early Bird Turkey Trot and the Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot.

Please bring your non-perishable food items on the morning of your race between 6:30 am and 7:45 am.

Event Cap

It is our goal to NOT put an event cap in place...however, about 1 month prior we will need to order finisher medals. At that point, we will not be able to guarantee finisher awards to registrations coming afterwards. SO...Register early.

 Course & Pacing

It's a great course...The course is fairly flat...but it's North Georgia, so NOTHING is completely flat.

It's a 5K loop, so if you're running with your friends who want to run further, you'll be able to run together for the first part, and they'll take off and finish up on their own.

The further you go, the more loops you'll do. We'll have loads of entertainment along the way, so you won't event realize it's multiple laps. You'll need to finish in 3 hours (we'll keep the clock going till the last finisher comes in, but the police & aid stations will be leaving). That's a 13:45 avg pace. 

 Our events are designed to be fun and for the entire family. With that in mind any competitor, spectator, parent, volunteer, or sponsor, exhibiting unsportsmanlike conduct or interfering with the positive, competitive atmosphere of the event will be asked to leave the venue and course immediately with no refunds.

​**All registrations are final...we're sorry, but there are no refunds, deferrals, or transfers.
