17th Annual Johnson City Turkey Trot
November 24 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am
Up & At ‘Em, Inc. presents the 17th annual Johnson City Turkey Trot. Over the years this race has become an iconic event of the area coined as “The Place To Be Thanksgiving Day.” Although this 5k race is the largest in the Tri Cities area, it has become more than just a race to all as it is also seen as a homecoming or family tradition to do every year with over 4,000 of our closest friends and family.
Participants of The Johnson City Turkey Trot are invited to bring canned food items or a small toy item to Memorial Park Community Center (510 Bert Street) on the day of packet pickup. Canned food items and toys will be donated to Good Samaritan Minsitries, Inc “Hope For The Holidays” campaign. Items can be donated in either of the two large Good Samaritan Barrels that will be on location for drop-off.
Please note that the course has a small change this year. From State of Franklin, left on Buffalo Rd., right on Walnut St., left on Boyd St. The rest of the route is the same.
