Course description

The 2019 Turkey Day Trail Trot course is one of our favorites on the east side of Battle Creek Regional Park. A few challenging hills on a 5k double loop course.  Runners will run clockwise on the outer loop and counter clockwise on the inner loop. For those who plan on going back for seconds of turkey and dressing should run the 10K and do two laps of the 5K course

Be prepared for a mix of paved trail and off-pavement cross country ski trails including a dash of Mother Nature in the mix, could be warm and sunny then again, it has snowed early. 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.
