November 3, 2021

The 14th annual Festival Foods Turkey Trot will be held on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 25th, at 8 A.M. starting at the Menominee Nation Arena located at 1212 S Main Street. It’s a great opportunity for everyone (including your dogs!) to get some fitness in before the Thanksgiving meal and to join the community in a long-time tradition.

The festive five-mile run and two-mile walk/run and dog jog will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh and the Oshkosh Community YMCA. Participants will receive a free long-sleeved t-shirt and a Festival Foods 5” Upper Crust pumpkin pie.

Registration is open now and the cost is $25 for adults and $15 per child. Regular online registration will run from November 1st through the 24th. The cost for adults is $30 and $15 for children. Race Eve/Day registration cost is $35 per adult and $15 per child. T-shirt sizes will not be guaranteed for those who register on Race Eve/Day.
