The 12th Annual Up North Media Traverse City Turkey Trot 5K & 5 Mile is a family favorite! We start Thanksgiving day off right with two different race distances -- a 5K and a 5 mile -- and, as we promote healthy lifestyles, we also give back to local charities. All runners receive a commemorative long-sleeve Turkey Trot T-shirt with registration. Invite the whole family to participate in this one-of-a-kind event! Don’t forget to snag your festive turkey hat during registration! Please click here for more info or to register!
The Up North Media Traverse City Turkey Trot has contributed more than $100,000 to many great local area causes over the past 12 years. This year's race will benefit TART Trails Boardman Lake Loop Project and local youth teams and organizations. Come join us to continue your family tradition or start a new one while supporting your community!
Children under the age of 3 in a stroller are free (but will not receive a T-shirt). Dogs are also free!
