2021 Turkey Traverse Recap

Thank you to everyone that made it out to this year’s Turkey Traverse 5(ish)K! We had about 100 racers participate in the in-person timed event Saturday morning, and many others who ventured out throughout the weekend to run or walk the open course. We heard great feedback on the open course and plan to continue to offer that option at future races whenever possible. Have pictures you want to see posted? Send them to us at
