All about the Turkey Trot....

It's the most fun you'll ever have on Thanksgiving Day, guaranteed!  The Chase Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot offers two distances including the 5 Miler and the "Walk N' Talk" 2.5 Miler. We will also be awarding 2100 freshly bake Whole Foods pumpkin pies, the McDonalds Tot Trot, finisher medals and a chance to get out of the house and give back!  Also, morning exercise makes Thanksgiving Day eating 'guilt free'!


CHASE TURKEY TROT 5-MILER (Run or Walk):  Over 7000 “turkeys” are expected to compete in this family tradition.  Runners and walkers will enjoy a 5 mile “tour” of The Ohio State University with 2,000 freshly baked WHOLE FOODS pumpkin pies awarded to the top finishers (1,000 men and 1,000 women runners & 100 walkers).

COLUMBUS PARENT MAGAZINE ‘WALK & TALK 2.5-MILER’: This 2.5 mile walk is ideal for the entire family and a great way to work off a few calories.  Some may choose to "run" the distance but we discourage "serious" runners as this event is designed for a casual pace.
