ALL RACE PACKETS MUST BE PICKED UP ON NOVEMBER 21ST (NO RACE DAY PICKUP)
The Blacksburg Turkey Trot is the perfect mix of fun and fitness on Thanksgiving morning (8:30am on Thursday, November 22, 2018). The 5k course is designed with all skill levels of walkers and runners in mind! It's ideal for first-timers and veteran runners alike. The Turkey Trot is a professionally timed event (you'll receive a race bib and chip timing device at packet pickup), but don't let that deter you from coming dressed in your favorite Thanksgiving-themed running gear!
The Gobble Gobble Kids Dash is a can't-miss tradition for kids on Thanksgiving (8:00am on Thursday, November 22, 2018). Kids Dash participants will finish prior to the start of the Blacksburg Turkey Trot.
This is what it's all about. We're collecting canned foods and non-perishables for the Interfaith Food Pantry from all participants at packet pickup for the Blacksburg Turkey Trot. Our collective effort can make a huge impact and it's super important to us that we use this event to help those who are hungry around this holiday. So, how do you contribute?
Each participant is asked to bring one canned good or non-perishable to packet pickup (Wednesday, November 21st from 12pm-7pm). More than one is welcomed and encouraged. VA Momentum will consolidate all of the items and ensure they are delivered to the Interfaith Food Pantry.
