Peoria Turkey Trot

Written By: Andrew Ketterer


Are you ready to run for your Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday? Well, here’s your chance to win a race, AND A TURKEY!

Join the Peoria Park District for the 43rd Annual Peoria Turkey Trot—Peoria’s oldest running race—on this Sunday at 1:00 p.m. After winding their way through the four-mile Detweiller Park course, the top two finishers in each division receive a trophy and turkey (compliments of Kroger). Every single racer will receive a Turkey Trot t-shirt with registration.

So, who’s ready to claim the bragging rights in their family? And who knows, you may just come home with a free turkey!

There will also be a half-mile fun-run for the kids that will take place before the big race.

Through 11/20: $16 ($14 for Illinois Valley Striders Members)
