Lynchburg Turkey Trot – participate in-person on Thanksgiving Day or continue with a TWIST on tradition from anywhere you choose!

Traditions are important – and as we have all learned, so is the ability to adapt and evolve. The year 2020 taught us so much – and now for 2021 we are so excited to offer both a classic Thanksgiving Day run AND continue delivering cheer, holiday family fun, and spreading community spirit right to the doorstep. Thank you for helping us keep the Lynchburg Turkey Trot tradition alive for so many families in a pandemic year – both in spirit and participation to feed families in need.

Let’s keep our community tradition alive and well – together we will share our LOVE for Lynchburg – our neighbors, our families, and our community as a whole. Join us this Thanksgiving to celebrate all we have to be thankful for.

But the Lynchburg Turkey Trot is more than a tradition – every registration feeds TWO families a Thanksgiving meal. HumanKind is still seeing high needs as families are striving to get back on their feet. There is no doubt in our mind that this Thanksgiving is an important time to help families in need. 

Here’s how it works...Register and choose to be in-person or virtual, get your gear mailed to you or at the drive-thru packet pick up, join us on Thanksgiving morning or select a day of your choice to run or walk on a course of your choosing or treadmill, use our race app to keep track, submit your results to be added to the virtual leaderboard, and don’t forget to wear your turkey swag!
