Charlotte Turkey Trot Feathers

ABOUT

Celebrated as one of the 20 Best Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trots in America, the Turkey Trot is a Charlotte Thanksgiving tradition for the past 35 years. The largest road race in North Carolina with a record 10,258 participants in 2023 is a homecoming destination for extended families, old classmates, and a place to meet your neighbors. The community comes together to kick-off the holiday season with a healthy morning run or walk before heading home for food and family. Starting and finishing at SouthPark Mall, participants can choose from an 8K Run, a 5K Run/Walk, a 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk and a 50-yard Tot Trot.

 

Registration will open 100 days out on Tuesday, August 20th with a special event at Suffolk Punch Brewery at SouthPark Mall.

In the interim, race questions should be directed to info@cltturkeytrot.com and sponsorship questions directed to david@jesseysports.com. Follow us on FaceBook or Instagram.

THANKS FOR GIVING

THANKSGIVING - Gratitude and Giving

In the spirit of the holiday - the Turkey Trot embraces giving back to the Charlotte community. Partnering with Charlotte-based groups focused on helping those in need. Twenty percent of all sponsorship income is donated to the event's charity partners. Additionally, the event focuses on promoting the work of our community partners and being a catalyst for their growth – with the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department Holiday Toy Drive being our primary beneficiary.

CMPD Explorers Christmas Project in partnership with CPI Security, Queen City News, and K104.7 Beasley Radio Group

A synergistic partnership with our title sponsor and media partners – the Turkey Trot promoted and participated in the toy drive collecting hundreds of toys and making a cash donation of $20,000. The goal in 2024 and beyond is to supercharge the toy drive kick-off asking our 11,000 participants to drop a toy off at our Packet Pick-Up events and/or on Thanksgiving morning. Event TV, radio, social media and signage will promote the partnership.

Our Volunteer Group Donations ($11,600 total)

Additionally, Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina secondharvestmetrolina.org – All unused runner food and beverage provided by Harris Teeter is delivered to Second Harvest Food Bank immediately following the race. Additionally, Hilldrup will move all unused runner food and beverage provided by Harris Teeter to Second Harvest Food Bank immediately following the race.
