Silver Creek Turkey Trot 5K

November 26th, 2020 - 8:30 am to 11:00 am EST

Event Details

Join us this Thanksgiving, Thursday November 26, for our inaugural Silver Creek Turkey Trot 5K!

Enjoy running on our cart paths that wind through the tranquility and beautiful mountain views of the Silver Creek golf course. The race may be only 3.1 miles long, but don’t be fooled: The hills with 400 ft gain and loss will make you earn your Thanksgiving feast!

In-person participation is limited to 120 people. Wave starts will make sure that social distancing can be maintained. We strongly encourage fast runners to sign up for the first wave, and those who wish to go slower or even walk for the last one. For those who prefer to run their own race, we also offer a virtual option.

This event will be professionally chip-timed by GateCity Race Timing!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving we are holding this race as a fundraiser for Options of Burke County, a small non-profit advocacy center that provides empowerment services and emergency shelter to Burke County families in crisis. We have decided to keep the entry fee low, yet maximize our donation by not including free swag in the race price. Shirts and socks are available, though, and sales will raise additional funds. Orders must be placed by November 4. Limited sizes may be available at packet pick-up and on race day. Or if you prefer to just donate, you can do that, too!
