Q: Why did you cancel the in-person event and go virtual only?
A: Our team was in regular communication with city and county health officials during the past few months and we have reached the time when a decision needed to be made. It has become clear that we will not be issued a permit for our event, in accordance with the State of Texas, Dallas County, and City of Dallas mandates that are currently in effect.
Q: What is the "Virtual Turkey Trot"?
A: The "virtual" part means that instead of running in an organized, hosted event on Thanksgiving morning, you can run or walk a 5K or 8-mile distance from anywhere, and enter your results online between November 20 and November 29 to be a part of the virtual leader board. We will also focus on creating a fun and engaging virtual experience for all of our participants. LEARN MORE HERE
