TURKEY TROT 5K

& 1 MILE FUN RUN

Greetings Faithful Turkey Trotters!

 

We always love this time of year – the slight crisp chill in the air that comes with the beautiful changing leaves.  It means Turkey Trot time!  Unfortunately, this is not a normal year, no matter how you look at it.  We had long and serious discussions about whether we could pull off our Turkey Trot – using staggered starts, platooning runners in groups of 250, then letting the course clear and sending the next platoon.  Our observation was that the most fun and invigorating part of our Turkey Trot is the fantastic sense of camaraderie and friendship that has grown over the last 14 years.  That social energy just couldn’t exist if we had to make everyone leave the parking lot before the next group finished.

 

Once we had arrived at that decision, we contacted our technical race directing team – the folks at Enmotive.  They know that Thanksgiving Day is the biggest running day of the year and they were working with a group to hold a nationwide “Virtual Turkey Trot” from coast to coast.  The “race” offers some great swag that comes with your registration and you can get up and do your run on your own schedule!  You just click on the link below and then, during your registration process you simply choose “Blue Talon Bistro” from the list of “Teams” offered.  You’ll also be offered the chance to make a donation to Housing Partnerships – our signature charity – to help them in their mission to restore homes for local folks in need.  We know they were counting on the $20,000 that our Turkey Trot makes possible in a normal year, so they would be super grateful for any help they can receive.  You can sign up for the “Virtual Turkey Trot” at this link:

UPDATE:  We had an avid Blue Talon Bistro Turkey Trot fan send us a link to in “iFit” version of the race so you could run it on your treadmill inside!!

We are also actively recruiting someone to run the course with a GoPro camera so we could post the video and you could run our course from the comfort of your own home!  If we get that video, we will share it here and on Facebook.
