Dogs will follow runners/walkers at the back of the pack. Dogs are NOT allowed in the competitive division.  All dog owners are responsible to clean up after their dogs. Plastic bags will be available at check-in. BECAUSE OF TRIPPING HAZARDS, RETRACTABLE LEASHES ARE PROHIBITED. All canine participants will receive a special Turkey Trot neck scarf.

STROLLERS
The Turkey Trot has grown in size beyond our imagination. Because of  the size of the crowd, we must ask for all stroller participants to line up in the back of the non competitive staging area.  This is for your child's safety and to prevent tripping hazards for other participants.  Thank you.
