Tom Turkey Trot '23

Sat November 18, 2023 Palmyra, VA 22963 US Directions



4 Centre Court
Palmyra, VA US 22963


Come join us for the 11th running of our Tom Turkey Trot!  Always held the Saturday before Thanksgiving, this race started as a way to help with growing chemotherapy bills of a local man near and dear to our hearts.  After his passing in 2016 we continued to race for a cause that was near and dear to HIS heart!  Now we run to raise money for Trade School scholarships to be given to students in Liberia.  

Our course is all paved through a local neighborhood.  With rolling hills and very little traffic it's a great opportunity for your PR!  We welcome runners, walkers, joggers, strollers, and dogs. We will run in waves of 10 people at a time, 5 waves to start at 8:00 am and every 30 minutes after.  All registrants will receive a commemorative sticker for this year! ALL course finishers will receive a unique 2023 medal, and the 1st place finisher in each wave will *win* a trophy recognizing their accomplishment! We are back to serving pancakes at the finish line this year, as well!  All runners get pancakes with their registration fee, extra people who come to cheer you on can eat for just $5 each.

You may also choose to run this race virtually!  Please email after registration if you would prefer to run on your own.  Finisher medal will be delivered or shipped to you after November 20th.
