For over 30 years, Columbus has come out to run this annual Thanksgiving race, The Columbus Turkey Trot, recognized by Runner’s World Magazine as one of America’s “Best Hometown Favorite” holiday races!
Join in on November, 22nd, 2018!
There are three events: The 5-mile race, the 2-mile walk…and the Tot Trot (a 100-yard dash) for children ($5 when registering with an adult). EVERY participant of the 5-mile race and the 2-mile walk will receive a pumpkin pie; finisher’s medal; goody bag; chip timing; and a ¾ zip, long-sleeved technical shirt with the race logo. Tiny Turkey Trotters participating in the Tot Trot receive a custom shirt, medal, and finish line treat! These Tiny Trot registrants may also walk or run for free with a parent who is a paid registrant for the adult events.
This fun, family-friendly race event benefits the Easter Seals’ EARLY INTERVENTION PROGRAM which provides hands-on, comprehensive support to help the under-five set reach their full potential, regardless of challenges, needs, or disabilities.
