Because everyone looks good in a day-glow vest and a Santa hat! If you are looking to be a part of this year’s Turkey Trot but trottin’ isn’t your thing, come give us a hand!
The biggest thing we are looking for are course marshals to help protect and direct the runners out on the course. General setup, registration help, post race festival and breakdown help is always welcome. We will put everyone to work!
Is there a better way to start your Thanksgiving than trotting through Old Town Louisville? Of course we don’t think so! This year’s course has plenty of room to stretch your legs, set your PR, or maybe just take in the festivities at your leisure. This flat, fast, and family-friendly race is perfect for everyone!
A huge thank you to all of the local sponsors who make this free event possible!
