6th Annual Terre Haute Turkey Trot

November 28th, 2019


Come run, walk, and feed the hungry at the Terre Haute Turkey Trot!

The Terre Haute Turkey Trot is a fun family friendly 5k race and 1 mile fun run near Downtown Terre Haute. Partial proceeds and all canned foods will be given to our local soup kitchens and food pantries so that they can help feed the hungry! So come burn the calories before you settle down for those delicious Thanksgiving meals and help those less fortunate than yourself have a great meal on Thanksgiving. We will deliver all donations to our local charities after the race.
