AMERICA'S LARGEST VIRTUAL TURKEY TROT RUN

Put on your running shorts and lace up your shoes, that time of year is almost upon us, the Annual Turkey Trot Challenge! We call it America’s Turkey Trot Run since it’s the largest Virtual Turkey Trot in the United States. Get family and friends together and take part in one of our biggest events of the year!

The Turkey Trot Challenge was created by The Virtual Run Challenge in 2018. As Turkey Trot runs and races are wildly popular among runners of all ages and skill levels, the same goes for our popular Thanksgiving run event, the Turkey Trot Challenge, which is not much different except for one thing, our Turkey Trot Race is a virtual Thanksgiving race.

This means you don’t have to travel long distances, or miss out on the Thanksgiving race because they are too far away, or have to miss it entirely because you will be busy with Family, or traveling on Thanksgiving. With the Virtual Turkey Trot Challenge, you can run ANYTIME, ANYWHERE. You can run in the streets of New York City or on the beaches of the Caribbean Sea in Mexico, you’re free to run anywhere, any time of day, and on any day you like!

Our race offers you a choice between 5k Turkey Trot or the 10k Turkey Trot.
