DATENovember 26 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
20th annual Lansing Turkey Trot – A Thanksgiving morning tradition! Run in-person with us or virtually!
This race is put on by the Michigan Running Foundation with proceeds supporting youth running in Michigan. In 2019 over $70K in grants were given. This is a fantastic 5k on Thanksgiving morning that the entire family will love. Runners and Walkers of all abilities are welcome!
This year the race will be set up with an open/flexible start line. Sign up for one of the 3 time slots; 8am to 9am, 9am to 10am, 10am to 11am. We are limiting the number of participants per time slot to 250 at this time. There will be no crowded mass start. Keep an eye on the start line and begin your race when it is free of other participants. No more than 5 people will start at a time. The start line will be wide, and the space is very open to allow for proper social distancing. You do not have to feel rushed to get to the starting line. Start when you are ready and at your own pace.
