Join us on Saturday, November 17th, 2018 for the 2 Mile, 10 Mile, or Tiny Turkey Trot!
THE FIRST 2,000 PEOPLE TO REGISTER WILL RECEIVE A $20 VOUCHER FOR A HONEYSUCKLE WHITE TURKEY!
The Wichita Turkey Trot is Wichita’s oldest race and offers the best views of the city!
The 2 and 10-mile courses are USATF certified and chip timed, starting in the heart of downtown Wichita. Beginning at Century II, runners will make their way across the Douglas Street bridge, turning to run along the Arkansas River. This scenic route showcases some of the best parts of Wichita including Exploration Place, the Keeper of the Plains, Sim Park, and the Veterans Memorial Park before returning runners across the Douglas Street bridge and back to Century II. This is a great course with plenty of aid stations along the way.
Want to get out and enjoy the morning with your friends but don’t want to be competitive? Come on out for our easy two mile course.
Passing by some of the city’s most iconic landmarks, this ten mile scenic course will have you done before you know it and maybe even a PR.
