One week to the 50th Ithaca Turkey Trot! Reserve your shirt now—sizes are limited

Good day, runners! Thanksgiving is just a week away, so make sure your plans include the 50th running of the Ithaca Turkey Trot. It’s a festive community prediction run, not a race, with pies from Purity Ice Cream to the five closest predictions. This year we have 50th Turkey Trot long-sleeve T-shirts available for $20. Pre-order online to reserve your size or purchase at the run.

What better way to start Thanksgiving Day than to run/jog/walk/crawl 5.5 miles (or any distance you desire—the challenge is to predict how long you’ll be out) and then enjoy baked goods donated by Ithaca Bakery, apples courtesy of Cornell Orchards, apple cider provided by FLRC, and the possibility of winning a pie from Purity Ice Cream to decorate your Thanksgiving dinner table. Bring your friends and family—it’s totally fine to walk or even modify the course to meet your needs.

We will once again be collecting money for Loaves & Fishes of Tompkins County, a nonprofit organization that provides a place for free meals, hospitality, companionship, and advocacy for those in need in the community. You can donate online before the event or bring cash to the event. The suggested donation is $10.

No pre-registration is necessary though you can donate funds or pre-order a shirt in advance of the event. Either way, you’ll fill out your prediction when you arrive. Please come to the Ithaca High School cafeteria between 7:30–8:30 AM for the 9:00 AM start. There will be no COVID-19 restrictions, though anyone who wishes to wear a mask is welcome to do so.

Gobble gobble!

Hi Bruce,

I was unable to attend in the morning but did complete the course in the afternoon. I ordered a shirt. Is it possible to pick it up?
