About This Activity


Join us on Thanksgiving morning for the Omni Amelia Island CHIP TIMED Turkey Trot 5K and our 1 mile Kids Fun Run. The time chipped 5K will start and finish at Omni Amelia Island Plantation’s serene Racquet Park, located next to the Verandah restaurant. Enjoy a scenic run through the beautiful, tree-canopied roads of Amelia Island. Complimentary child care will be available along with our Kids Fun Zone.

Running or walking is perfectly acceptable, but sorry–no animals, bicycles or strollers will be permitted on the course.


Awards will be given to the top three male and female winners in each age category. Prizes will also be given for the most creative outfit and for the most participants in a family.


Pre-registered participants will receive a free race t-shirt. Please pick up your race packet and t-shirt on November 26 at the McArthur Family YMCA or on the morning of the race at Racquet Park's Health & Fitness Center.

Entry fee: $25 per adult, $15 per child (12 and under). For additional information, please contact Mark Burnett with any questions at 904.277.5193 or mburnett@omnihotels.com

Check in begins the morning of the race from 6:30-7:45am. The Fun Zone will be open during the event and will offer family activities including a bounce house, S.A.F.E. Archery, face painting, tennis demos, personal training tips and more!
