The Brattleboro Turkey Trot is a spirited run/walk event held each year on Thanksgiving Day, with a 1-mile kids’ run at 9 a.m., followed by a 3-mile run at 9:15. Both courses are out-and-back on Upper Dummerston Rd., starting and ending near the Brattleboro Country Club. THERE IS NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION! Please register below by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 27.
There is no entry fee again this year, but we’re asking for small donations to help pay race costs — bibs, timing chips and port-a-pottie rental. You can make a donation while registering, and we are so grateful for your support.
You must preregister to be timed.
Check-in and bib number pickup is Thanksgiving morning from 8 to 8:45 a.m. Please be on time to check in, as we usually have over 200 participants. Give yourself a few extra minutes to navigate the busy Country Club parking lot! (Also dress appropriately, as it may be COLD!)
PLEASE BRING A FOOD DONATION! For the fifth year running, let’s spread the giving by bringing a nonperishable food item to donate to the local food shelf, Groundworks Collaborative. We will collect food items at the bib pickup point and bring them to Groundworks after the race. You can also learn more and make a donation online at Groundworksvt.org, or bring cash donations on race-day and we’ll give it directly to Groundworks along with the food.
Strollers are welcome; no dogs please. The road will be open, so runners/walkers need to keep to the left and be aware of traffic.
