_ The 2021 Turkey Trot Costume Fun Run:

Get your costumes ready and get your flock together to enjoy a beautiful Thanksgiving morning together. Walk, run, or strut 5k or 1 mile on a course through beautiful Star Hill area. This is NOT a timed event. It is just plain fun, family, and community. Flock Registration is a good way to get the whole family active on Thanksgiving morning and burn calories for the rest of the day! Register as a flock and your flock will be entered to win best dressed flock at the race! 

The course is flat and fast 5k (3.1 mi) loop course or a 1 mile out-and-back through Star Hill.

The first 200 participants to register are guaranteed one of our famous race shirts. Participants have said that they do this event solely for this shirt. The shirt is a bright orange long-sleeved moisture wicking shirt with our Turkey Trot race logo on the front and our local sponsors on the back. 

Not ready to race with the crowd yet? Check out our VIRTUAL options. Stay home and run, pick up your swag and race shirt via our contactless packet pick up protocol.
