Over 2,000 runners are expected to be at the starting line on Thanksgiving morning for this popular Asheville Turkey Day tradition. The 5k race is in it’s 16th year and will start and finish at Pack Square and take you on a footrace through downtown Asheville! Part of the proceeds will be donated to MANNA Foodbank.
DENNIS DUFFY SAYS
I can’t imagine a Thanksgiving without an Asheville Turkey Trot. What a way to start the holiday season and a long weekend. We all know that the course involves a relatively easy start, with the exception of that mild climb at the end of Central. But then at about mile two it is ‘HELLO’ – a big ascent. So let’s all suck it up, have fun, and commiserate afterwards. Look strong at the end; people will be watching.
