The Blacksburg Turkey Trot presented by Kroger is the perfect mix of fun and fitness on Thanksgiving morning (8:30am on Thursday, November 23, 2023). The 5k course is designed with all skill levels of walkers and runners in mind! It's ideal for first-timers and veteran runners alike. The Turkey Trot is a professionally timed event (you'll receive a race bib and chip timing device at packet pickup), but don't let that deter you from coming dressed in your favorite Thanksgiving-themed running gear!
The Gobble Gobble Kids Dash is a can't-miss tradition for kids on Thanksgiving (8:00am on Thursday, November 23, 2023). They'll be energized by the roar of the crowd and feel the freedom of wind in their face as they run through the streets of Blacksburg. Kids Dash participants will finish prior to the start of the Blacksburg Turkey Trot.
