About This Activity

Attention all runners and walkers join Campus Recreation for our 27th annual Turkey Trot event held on Thanksgiving Eve at the new Panther Plaza in front of the WUC Building on the FIU Biscayne Bay Campus.  

We will offer competition in four catogories: Men's 3 mile run, Women's 3 mile run, Women's 2 mile walk and Men's 2 mile walk. The first place finishers in each category will take home a Thanksgiving turkey and gift basket. The first five runner-up's in each category will also receive a Thanksgiving turkey as a prize.

Turkey prizes are limited to one per household and participants can only compete in one category for this event.

Attention Trotters: We are accepting donations for our student Food Pantry. Items needed are canned fruits, canned veggies, canned meat, tuna, peanut butter, rice, and pasta or any non-perishable items. These items will be greatly appreciated and will assist unfortunate FIU students in need. Please look for our donation box at the panther plaza.
