About This Activity

The 18th Annual Cain Center Turkey Trot is set for 8:00 a.m. on Thanksgiving morning.  Running the 5K or participating in the one-mile walk has become as much a family tradition for many as turkey and pumpkin pie.

Even doggies can join in ($10) and race with their own special bandana (they must be on a leash at all times).  There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place awards in each age catagory. 

Each participant will receive a t-shirt and a race packet containing a ticket for door prizes and Danny's Smokehouse in Athens will smoke turkeys for several drawings.  Anyone who brings a non-perishable food item to be donated to the Henderson County Food Pantry will receive an extra ticket for each item.

Early registration online at Active.com will be $25.  Online registration closes on November 24 at 9:00 p.m.  After November 24, the fee goes up to $30 and you must register at the Cain Center.  Same day registration will be available at 7:00 a.m.  Entry fees are non-refundable.  T'shirt sizes not guaranteed after November 17.
