About This Activity

Join us for our Turkey Trot 5k to help raise donations for the MSU Food Bank before Thanksgiving! We are collecting canned goods to donate to the food bank.

Registration is $15 for MSU students or $20 for non-students or Lansing area residents. A portion of the fees will go to supporting MSU Food Bank. Participants are encouraged to bring canned goods on the day of the race to donate or you can bring them into The State News prior to the race at 435 E. Grand River Ave between 9 AM - 5 PM Monday through Friday. Our local event sponsor, Kroger, will match any can donations at the end of the event!

The Turkey Trot will take place on MSU campus on Sunday, November 20, 2016. The race will begin at 12 PM. Awards will begin at 1 PM. When you finish the race, you'll enjoy live music presented by Harper's Restaurant & Brew Pub and roam the award area where East Lansing businesses have booths and free swag!

Runners will receive a long sleeve t-shirt for the race and a gift bag at the end of the race as supplies last. Additionally, each runner will be entered into our raffle to win prizes from our sponsors!

Registration and check-in begin at 11 AM before the race.

Deadline to sign-up for the race is November 16, but the deadline to be guaranteed a t-shirt is November 6.

Sign up now to join The State News and our sponsors, Kroger and Harper's, to support a great cause this Thanksgiving!
