2021 Turkey Trot Returns In Person, Registration Open
By Beth Milligan | Sept. 4, 2021
The Traverse City Turkey Trot will return for an in-person event in 2021 after moving to a virtual format last year due to the pandemic.
Racers can expect the course to be similar to years past, beginning and ending at St. Francis High School and winding through downtown Traverse City in between. Both the 5K run/walk and the 5 Mile Flier option will be part of the event this year, which is slated to take place Thanksgiving morning. Event proceeds will benefit TART Trails.
"Moving the event to virtual last year in response to the COVID-19 pandemic was a challenge, as the Traverse City Turkey Trot - much like Thanksgiving - is a tradition that is often enjoyed with family," according to an event release. "Safety is still a top priority for the Up North Media Traverse City Turkey Trot. Local and state guidelines will be followed, and runners will be updated as the race approaches."
Registration and more information for the event is available online here.Comment
