Thanksgiving Day
 
ARC's Rescue Run 5K and Family Fun Run consists of a USA-TF certified 5K course (timed) and a 1-mile family fun run.
Well-socialized, leashed dogs and strollers are welcome. 

The Tommy Crockett Memorial Rescue Run at Two Rivers Ford is more than just a race. It is an opportunity to get off your couch and be active with your family and friends... all while giving back to help animals in need. 

This race was formerly Mt. Juliet's most popular Thanksgiving Day race, the Turkey Trot. Now the event has a new name, the same things you enjoyed through the years, and even more to love!

1st, 2nd, and 3rd place medals are awarded to the fastest male and female runners in each of a dozen+ age groups and an additional trophy and gift basket are awarded to the fastest male and female overall winners.

Race proceeds are for the benefit of Animal Rescue Corps, an animal protection nonprofit.
