Oglesby Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day

What are you doing on Thanksgiving morning? If you want to kick off your holiday on the right foot, sign up for the 37th annual Oglesby Turkey Trot. The 3-mile course takes you through the streets of nearby Oglesby for a healthy start to your day!

This all-ages event is open to runners of all levels. Work up your appetite for your big Thanksgiving meal later in the day. This exciting race kicks off at 9 am November 24, 2016. The starting line is less than 10 minutes from our family resort, so you can get a good night's rest before the race. When you cross the finish line, you'll be treated to free refreshments like a soda or beer (21+ only) to get ready for the fun post-race party. You can dance a Thanksgiving turkey trot to live DJs and enjoy giveaways for all contestants. But don't linger too long because Thanksgiving dinner is just a few hours away!

The race is organized by Starved Rock Runners. Sign up early because the first 1,000 entrants receive a commemorative race cap. Kids 10 and under can race for free. Participants are also asked to help out the less fortunate this Thanksgiving. Bring non-perishable donations to benefit the Illinois Valley Food Pantry on the day of the race and receive a free gift while supplies last.
