Thanksgiving Day is the most popular race day in America. It's the perfect day to come together to benefit ourselves, our families, and our communities. Start a new Thanksgiving tradition by running or walking in your local, family-friendly Turkey Trot STL 5K. An active morning will help balance the afternoon's calorie intake and your participation will benefit those less fortunate by supporting local food pantries and St. Patrick Center, a supporter of the homeless.

The Turkey Trot STL 5K course in Arnold is flat, fast, and scenic. Participants should keep their eyes open for turkeys and other wildlife. The course is certified for distance accuracy by USA Track & Field (MO15025LJ). The 1/2 Mile Youth Race course (not shown) is a flat out-and-back course along the last 1/4 mile of the 5K course. Wheelchair racers would be better served at TTSTL St. Charles, which has a wheelchair-friendly course and a wheelchair race division. Children in courteously-driven strollers are welcome. Dogs are not permitted on the course.
*When picking up your race number, please bring a canned food item or a packaged toiletry item for donation to the Arnold Food Pantry.
