Turkey Trot Coming Up

The 2017 Turkey Trot, the 61st running of this series of races, will be held at the Mott Park Recreation Area on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 23. This continues our tradition of hosting the longest running race series in the state of Michigan.

Late registration will start at 8:00 AM. At 9:00 AM, the 1-mile race for kids 13 and under will start along with the 2-mile race for kids 15 and under. At 9:30, the 3-mile run/walk will start with 8 age categories from 17 and under to over 60.

Registration for those 17 and under is $5.00, $15.00 for adults. If you cannot afford the registration fee, come out and run anyway! The on-line registration site can be found at this link. If you need a paper sign up sheet to turn in at Bauman’s or at the clubhouse on the day of the race, use this link to view and download the PDF file.
