“A Healthy Way To Start Thanksgiving Day!”

Valparaiso Turkey Trot

Registration is NOW OPEN

Join us in 2017!

Mark your calendars… the 15th annual Valparaiso Turkey Trot is November 23rd, 2017! This holiday tradition brings together friends and families from all over the country (33 states represented in 2016) to kick off Thanksgiving Day in a fun and healthy way. The event includes a 10K Run and 5K Walk/Run, which are open to runners and walkers of all ages and paces! Last year, the Valparaiso Turkey Trot reached its largest numbers yet and was capped at 4,000, making it the largest race of its kind in Northwest Indiana. The maximum number of participants will stay the same for 2017, so make sure to register early!

Early Bird registration will be from now until October 15th, which includes $30 registration and a guarantee for a t-shirt. We know that some people don’t want another shirt in their closet, so we’ve included the option this year to not purchase a shirt, making registration only $25 per person. Also new this year, all participants will receive a finisher medal, so everyone can show off their amazing accomplishment of finishing a 5K or 10K! Walkers, runners, sponsors, volunteers – everyone’s presence on Thanksgiving morning supports and promotes mental health and wellness in our community!  On October 16, 2017 price increases to $35 per person and shirt availbiltiy is NOT gauranteed and no shirt option will be removed.  REGISTER TODAY!
