Strollers are allowed on the course but must begin the race in the back of the line so as to not interfere with runners. In addition, children riding in strollers must remain in their strollers at all times while on the course for safety reasons. We want everyone to have a safe Turkey Trot, so please take extra precaution to ensure your safety, your child’s safety, and the safety of the runners around you. It is recommended that all strollers have a hand-break and be tethered to a participant to ensure safety.


  • Chip timing will be used for the 5K again this year.
  • Entry fee is not refundable and may not be transferred
  • Animals are not allowed on the course.
