The Original A2 Turkey Trot presented by Kroger

Experience a totally different take on the turkey trot with the Kroger A2 Turkey Trot — the race that lets you have your Thanksgiving Day back and helps put turkeys on tables for people in our community!

LET’S TALK TURKEY!

This year, everybody is an Iron Turkey!

The Iron Turkey challenge is typically running both the 10K and the 5K on the day of the race.  These two distances total 9.3 miles. This year, as we are only able to hold the event virtually, we have multiple Iron Turkey Challenges.  The challenge will begin on November 18 and run through Thanksgiving Day.  As always, we start our race before Thanksgiving Day to be able to collect food and money for our partner, Food Gatherers.

Here are the Iron Turkey Challenges:

Classic Iron Turkey: Run a 5K and a 10K any time during our dates or back to back on Thanksgiving Day.

Bread and Butter Iron Turkey:
Run one mile per day beginning November 18. On Thanksgiving Day, November 26, finish with a 1.3 run to total 9.3 miles.

Cornucopia Iron Turkey: Run one mile on November 18 and add on another mile each day until Thanksgiving Day where you will run 9.3 miles.

Tin Foil Iron Turkey: Run 1 Mile and a 5K any time during our dates or back to back on Thanksgiving Day.

You may run or walk anyplace you like, but we do have maps below if you would like to run our traditional courses at Hudson Mills Metropark. You will upload your results, but this is a fun event for the whole family… or the whole neighborhood!

Awards?  You betcha!  We had planned on a virtual award ceremony on Zoom, Friday, November 27 at 4 p.m, but the date has now changed.  Details will be sent to all registered participants. These awards will not be based on your finish time.  They will be based on our own Epic categories.  You’ll need to tune in to find out!  Information will be sent to all registered participants.

We’ll even have a start line!

Tune in to our Zoom Room at 9 a.m. on Thanksgiving morning for a proper sendoff with our traditional national anthem, fun music, starter music, and cowbells!  See you at the start line!
