It is time to get on with the heavy lifting for the 2019 Tallahassee Turkey Trot. We want you to be our guest on Thanksgiving morning in SouthWood in record numbers. Our goal is to make this the best community racing experience of 2019. Whether you want to race fast and hard, just burn some calories on Thanksgiving while enjoying a fun run, or walk with friends and family, November 28 is the day to do it and 8:00 a.m. (mile) or 8:30 a.m. (5K, 10K or 15K) are the times to do it.
And with that in mind we sent out a survey to the participants in last year’s events. The strongest message we received in response was that Turkey Trot is about bringing our community together. People like running and being together on Thanksgiving. When asked if the number of races offered on Turkey Day should be reduced from four, 86.87% of those who responded said “keep all four.” I think that is your way of telling us to keep the event accessible to all.
We are very pleased to announce that this year’s Turkey Trot Festival will be Sunday, November 24, from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 at Goodwood Museum and Gardens (1600 Miccosukee Rd). There will be plenty of other opportunities to register and pick up race packages, but this will be the most fun. Goodwood is a great place to listen to music and share good conversation with friends.
