Ridgewood Turkey Trot

Raleigh, NC

Work up an appetite for Thanksgiving Dinner and help fight Multiple Sclerosis at the Triangle area's favorite Thanksgiving event - the Ridgewood Turkey Trot. As of 11/16/16 the race has filled. We have a limited number of charity slots and kids dash slots available.

The Charity registration is $50 and benefits the National MS Society.  It includes an entry in the timed 8K Race.  You will also receive a long-sleeve gender specific race shirt, but depending on the size, your shirt may not be available on race day.  We are ordering additional shirts that will be available at Fleet Feet in about 2 weeks.  We will send an email when they are available.


Bring the family to the Ridgewood Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning.

Those who did not attent advanced check-in on race morning (6:30 - 7:45 am) inside Tripps Restaurant at Ridgewood Shopping Center (Wade Ave and Ridge Rd).

Events include competitive and recreational 8K's and a 100-yard Kid's Dash (age 7 and under). During the 8K, kids can decorate the finish chute road with sidewalk chalk or make signs to cheer for mom or dad.

Reasons to go ahead and register now:

  • Shirts are not guaranteed for those who register after Nov 13 BUT...   Most shirt sizes are still available
  • The event SOLD OUT the past 5 years and is already about 95% full as of 11/16
You have two events to choose from.  The 8K Race is chip-timed and includes a long-sleeve gender-specific technical race shirt.  The untimed 8K Recreational Run includes a race t-shirt.

Strollers and baby joggers are permitted ONLY in the Recreational 8K. We ask that those with stroller/joggers start toward the back and prioritize everyone's safety over time. Our insurance does not permit any dogs on the course.

Online registration price of the Kid's dash to just $5.  Kids will be $10 from 11/24 thru race day.

Bring all of your out-of-town family & friends!  Wear your favorite Thanksgiving theme hat to be included in the Best Hat competition.
