Northern Michigan Events: Traverse City Turkey Trot

Join the fun and get some exercise before your big turkey dinner at Traverse City's annual Turkey Trot. Beginning at Thirlby Field, this festive 5k and 5m run/walk will get you pumped up for the holiday family feasting. The race even holds a new mascot, Butterball, a giant turkey you and your family can get a picture with.

Early registration is now closed, but it isn't too late to join! Day of registration will be available starting at 7am at Thirlby Field as well as day of packet pickup. The run then begins at 9am with awards and raffles proceeding around 10:30am.

All proceeds go to non-profits including, March of Dimes, Traverse City Area Public Schools, Angel Care and other charities around Northern Michigan. Run for a cause this Thanksgiving!
