ABOUT THE TURKEY TROT
Celebrating its 32nd year, the Turkey Trot returns to Downtown Baton Rouge on the morning of Thanksgiving 2018. This race is a local thanksgiving tradition – one that servers the community by keeping them active and fit through racing and by partnering with the March of Dimes as a fund-raiser to help their organization both financially and by spreading the word about the work they do.
The 2017 race was a tremendous success. We had just over 1,900 registered runners from 24 different states across the country! The race was again the largest registered field for March of Dimes in 31 years. We’d love to surpass that and keep the growth trend going in 2018. The team at FRESHJUNKIE Racing is committed to the continued growth and success of this Baton Rouge staple. We are working hard to accommodate the growing numbers and make everyone’s Turkey Day a little more special.
