The 21st Annual Bradenton Runners Club Turkey Trot will be held in Bradenton again this year on Thanksgiving morning, Thursday, November 22nd. A unique and widely attended family-oriented community event, this race has never charged a registration fee, instead we ask all participants to recognize the efforts of selected local charities and help offset event costs through making donations via our registration page or race day (cash or canned goods).
As we did last year, we are offering the option to purchase a special edition Turkey Trot race shirt, including our turkeys amid runners logo. Please note that the shirts are an additional charge (shirts not picked up race day will be resold after the race and will not be shipped).
Due to permitting and venue restrictions, this race has been moved to GT Bray park and is a 5k run. Moving the race to GT Bray allows for more parking, and less of a walk to the starting line! There will be one water stop.
Race number pickup at pre registration tables starting at 6:45am on race day. Race Day Registration closes 7:45am. Starting Gun 8:00am. The overall Top Five Male and Female runners will receive a delicious pie for their Thanksgiving celebration.There are no age group awards.
Limited race day registration will also be available if space is available. Parking is limited in the area near the start, so please allow extra time as the later you arrive, the further away from the start/finish you will have to park.
