Rules of Engagement 

  1. No skates or bicycles are permitted. For those with small children, strollers are encouraged. 

  2. You must be at the start of the run/walk on time or you risk missing the volunteer support and amenities. We begin packing up registration no more than five minutes after the start. 

  3. Finish time and pace for the Turkey Run is 1 hour, (21:26 min/mi pace). As long as you meet that requirement, you can rest assured your efforts will be supported with hydration stations, course amenities, and proper medical coverage just in case. 

  4. We recognize that many of you run best with music or audiobooks but to ensure your safety and the safety of others, please do so in a manner that allows you to be aware of your surroundings. We’d prefer that you leave one ear unobstructed by only wearing one earbud at all times if at all.
