Running of the Turkeys

Arlington, VT

Traditional Thanksgiving 5K run in Beautiful Arlington, Vermont. Come on out and run with the Turkeys.

About this Event

We have always held this traditional Thanksgiving morning run in beautiful Arlington, Vermont, but in 2020 you can enjoy it on any course you choose! And complete the 5k any time during the week of Thanksgiving!


Pick your own! Or choose the traditional starting line at Fisher Elementary School in Arlington, Vermont, and follow the scenic Vermont course with a hill (or two or three…)! You can follow this course any time during the week of Thanksgiving.


Registration and Packet Pickup

We will mail and email you everything you need to participate. Or you can save on postage and arrange to pick up your packet over Thanksgiving week outside the Town Office in Arlington.


Walkers are welcome; kids are welcome; pets are welcome. Make it a family affair!


This year instead of age group or overall prizes, your glory is its own reward! You will track your run and upload it to the website or report your own result. Overall results will be collected and posted as they are processed on the race website.


We have a fun 2020 Turkeyware item for the first 500 entrants. Upload your photos to the website to enter a costume contest for most festive family or individual.

Entry Fees: 

$25 per participant, discount for BKVR members. You can join when you register!
