The turkey trot has gone virtual for 2020!

Due to the virus, our number one focus is the safety of participants and staff. With this in mind, the Turkey Trot has shifted to a virtual race this year. 

Event Details

Registration has closed. Pre-registered participants will get to enjoy a virtual race, available at the time and place they choose between 11/20-12/1. There is plenty of fun to be had, and we can’t wait to see how you make this race your own. Tag #PaysonTurkeyTrot on Facebook and Instagram, and share your fun outfits, crazy socks, or traditions.

What is a Virtual Race?
Participants who pre-registered before 11/18 are invited to participate in the virtual Turkey Trot. This means that there will be no organized day, time, or location for all runners to gather. Instead, each runner can choose when and where they run, participating in the same race as others, but at a distanced time and place of your choosing. 
Will there be prizes?
All 5k participants will receive a medal, and the first male and female to cross the finish line will receive a turkey. No age division awards will be offered this year. 
Can I still register?
The virtual race is only open to individuals who registered before the pre-registration deadline closed on 11/17. This who have pre-registered have received an email with additional information about the race. If you weren’t able to register this year, we hope that you’ll still take time this holiday season to safely exercise and enjoy the beautiful fall colors. 
When/ where is packet pickup?
Packet pick up is available at Rim Runners in Payson Monday- Saturday 10am-5pm from 11/19-12/1.
