[Urbana] 55th Annual Turkey Trot

Thursday, November 24
Lake House in Crystal Lake Park
FREE for All Ages

Join the Urbana Park District for a Thanksgiving morning tradition. Turkey Trot is a one-mile fun run/walk that is a great way to get some exercise before you sit down for dinner. Free hot chocolate is provided. The first 800 participants across the finish line receive a ribbon. Stay after the run for a prize raffle.

This year we’ll again put the “give” in Thanksgiving by accepting donations for the Urbana Park District Scholarship Fund. Your donation will help the park district offer reduced-price summer camp opportunities for children in need next year. 

Turkey Trot shirts are available for purchase at the Phillips Recreation Center at 505 W. Stoughton in Urbana from October 31st through November 23rd. You may also purchase a souvenir shirt on Thanksgiving Day at the Lake House. 

Parking is available at the special event lot on Broadway Ave.
Call the Urbana Park District Rainout Line for postponement information: 217-367-9575.
