New Canaan Turkey Trot

Sun November 17, 2019 Directions

5k Run

11:30AM EST
Waveny Park Castle, in the front circle or West porch - look for signs.

Get ready for Thanksgiving with a short run around New Canaan two Sundays before the holiday. 5 km course starting and finishing at the Waveny Park “castle.” ChronoTrack B-Tag timing. Post-race refreshments, awards to top male and female runners and age group winners.

Race day check-in opens at 10:30 a.m. Pre-race check-in at New Balance New Canaan beginning Friday, November 15 from 4 to 6 pm, and Saturday, November 16 from 10 am to 1 pm. 


Once again this year, there will be NO ON SITE RACE DAY PAPER REGISTRATION. Runners who wait until the last minute to register must do so before they arrive to check in, either on a computer at home or on a phone at the park. Once you have done that, you may proceed to the pre-registered check-in line. With an 11:30 a.m. start, you have plenty of time to register online ahead of time. We will have signs with a link to online registration at the park. Remember the price increases at midnight the day before.

Although the mobile app we use makes checking in quick and simple, we strongly advise you to take advantage of our early check in at New Balance New Canaan Friday and Saturday, especially if you have ordered a hat.

This process was used at the Darien Road Race in September and made race day much smoother. We hope you'll agree once you've used it here.

All proceeds benefit the Open Doors shelter.
