34th Annual Turkey Trot
Run/Walk Fun For All Ages

The City of Bloomington’s 34th annual Turkey Trot offers fun for all ages with a run and other festivities on Thanksgiving morning, November 22, in Miller Park.

A yearly tradition for many individuals and families in the community, the Turkey Trot features a 3 mile run with prizes in various age groups, from 14 and under to the 65+ category, a half mile fun run for ages eight and under and 9-14, and a 1.5 mile non-competitive walk. The Turkey Trot takes place rain, shine or snow.

“The Turkey Trot is a wonderful activity for people of all ages and fitness levels,” says Denise Balagna, Athletics Program Manager for the City of Bloomington. “It’s definitely an event that everyone, even little kids and seniors, can enjoy. It’s a wonderful way to kick off the Thanksgiving holiday!”

The top three finishers in each race category receive t-shirts, and all participants get a ribbon and are eligible for drawings for frozen turkeys and other raffle prizes. Registration begins at the Miller Park Pavilion at 8am on race day, with the first race beginning at 9am. It is free to register and participate.

Information about this all ages, family-friendly event is available from the City of Bloomington’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts department at (309) 434-2260 and online at
