Course description

The 2016 Turkey Day Trail Trot is run on a unique and challenging 5k course. The 10k will run two laps of the same 5k course.

Be prepared for a mix of paved trail and off-pavement cross country ski trails including a couple of steep uphills. The terrain is generally rolling and would not be described as flat.

The Turkey Day Trail Trot is welcoming to calm, friendly dogs. Please use a fixed, non-extendable leash and be aware of other runners.

Strollers are welcome, however some of the trails may dictate an off-road ready stroller. Keep this in mind.
