INFO

Founded in 2012, the Delaware The Turkey Trot is a family event, all are invited. We donate 100% of our proceeds to the Autism Society of Central Ohio. We have donated nearly $175,000 over our first 10 years.
The Race is held on Thanksgiving morning, behind Designer Fashion Warehouse/Kohl's, in Delaware, OH. The race begins at 8:30am. Kid's Run starts at 8:30, 5K/2Mile directly follows.

Little Gobbler Kid's Run

Cost: $10 before Nov 1.  | $15 Nov. 2-23

It will be a short race for kids ages 8 and under. Each child will receive a draw string bag, medal, and a t-shirt. We will have 2 Little Gobbler Races, one for ages 4 and under, and one for 5-8.

*If a child  wants to run BOTH the Little Gobbler & the 5K, indicate on your registration: if you register your child as a 5K participant, you can click yes to the question "Are you participating in the Kid's race as well." OR if you register them as a Little Gobbler, answer yes to the question "Are you participating as a 5K participant as well." They will only be charged for the 5K registration and can participate in both.

*If a child is running in the Little Gobbler and will be pushed in a stroller for the 5K, you only need to register them for the Little Gobbler.

5K/2Mile

Cost: $35 before Nov. 1, $40 Nov. 2-20, $44 (race week) Nov. 21-23

This  is a 5k (our course isn't an exact 5K, expect a 3ish mile course) for runners, or walkers.  Water is provided on the course and at start/finish. We also have 2 Mile option for the younger runners, or folks who'd prefer to walk.  Refreshments are provided at the finish line (water & light snacks). SWAG: Each participant receives a long-sleeved t-shirt, a finisher medal, a draw string bag, and every finisher receives an individual dessert.  The top 3 females and top 3 male finishers will receive an award (awards for top 3 5K finishers, 2 mile option does not count for our awards).

Why choose the VIRTUAL OPTION? If you are out of state, or won't be in town for the race, or feel more comfortable running at home, but want to support the cause, and still get your swag (shirt, bag, medal), then this is for you. You can choose to ship your packet for a fee.
