The annual Franklin Turkey Trot will still happen in 2020! The fun 5K will occur with a few changes to keep all of our runners safe and provide help to the Franklin Food Pantry neighbors. While the turkey trot will still officially run on Thanksgiving morning, November 26th, each runner can run or walk your own personal 5K when it is most convenient for you and can map out your favorite course anywhere throughout town. Once runners have finished the race, you can post a picture on social media sharing that you completed your run and your time while tagging the Franklin Food Pantry and using the hashtag #turkeytrot2020. Costumes are encouraged!
Runners can register here.
The registration fee of $25 goes directly to the Franklin Food Pantry, keeping donations local to help feed those in need. This year, the Franklin Food Pantry will not be able to accept food donations instead of the fee. Thank you for understanding this change in policy. The first 100 registers will receive a commentative t-shirt. Runners can also purchase a t-shirt directly from the registration page.
There are also several opportunities for local businesses to sponsor the race. Funds received from sponsorships are used to purchase t-shirts for the first 100 registered race participants, and other costs associated with the event. Any additional money from sponsorships will go directly to support the Franklin Food Pantry. Interested sponsors should contact Kim Cooper at firstname.lastname@example.org or Krystal Whitmore at email@example.com or sign up here. Thank you to all of our 2020 sponsors.
