Raleigh Turkey Trot

Raleigh, NC

Raleigh Turkey Trot Update:

Meredith College has denied our request to have parking for Raleigh Turkey Trot on campus due to COVID.  We are working on alternative plans including parking alternatives in the area of Ridgewood shopping enter as well as alternative venues for the event.  These alternative may require that we cap the number of participants.  Stay tuned for updates as we learn more.

Raleigh Turkey Trot has become a tradition. The Triangle's favorite Thanksgiving morning event returns for 2021 with an in-person 8K and Kids' Dash. 

Registration includes a long-sleeve gender-specific shirt.  Register by Nov 7 to be guaranteed a shirt.  Shirts may available after that date until sizes sell out.

Registration Fees:  Raleigh Turkey Trot is limited to 3,000 runners.  The race sold out each year until the pandemic/virtual race in 2020.  We hope to see everyone return to the tradition this year, so don't be left out!
