Turkey Strut 5K @ Wisnston-Salem Fairgrounds
Nov 23 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

We are now entering our 10th year of the Turkey Strut 5K! Besides being a great event, the Turkey Strut collects food for Second Harvest Food Bank. All participants are asked to bring at least 3 canned goods. A portion of your entry fee also goes to this great cause. You can learn more about them by visiting them online.

The event takes place at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds, which has PLENTY of parking and room for everyone.

The Turkey Strut 5K takes place on Thanksgiving Day morning. It features a USATF Certified 5K course and a 1 mile fun run/walk. Finally, you don’t have to sit around the house all day waiting for the turkey to finish baking. Place that turkey in the oven and come join the fun at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds. Be sure to register early; this event sells out every year!

The race will begin at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds off Deacon Blvd just across the street from BB&T Field/Stadium. With the incredible year to year growth of this event we have designed the new course to accommodate the participants and families. The course runs near BB&T Field/Stadium, Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum, and the Deacon Baseball field stadium. Given that the course is USATF Certified, final run times will go toward state and national records.

Bring your family and out-of-town guests for a great start to the Thanksgiving morning. Strollers and dogs are welcome to join the fun!
