Join us Thanksgiving morning to work up an appetite for a good cause in a true Charlottesville tradition. Unite with friends and family to run (or walk!) the 5K course through beautiful Ednam Forest and raise money for the UVA Children's Hospital.
Registration will open on Tuesday, October 14. Registration will close on November 17 or when we reach 1,400 entrants, whichever comes first.
The UVA Children's Hospital is a "hospital without walls". While the Hospital comprises the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Virginia Health System, its services extend across the Central Virginia community and beyond, and accomodates over 100,000 pediatric patient visits per year.
For children coping with complex illnesses, the Battle Building at UVA Children's Hospital is a new outpatient facility that provides a bridge between the acute care children receive in the hospital and the ongoing care they manage at home. It brings together related pediatric services and specialists for the convenience and comfort of families and provides the continuity of care needed to promote health and healing outcomes.
With your help, we’re looking forward this year to contributing the largest donation ever to this worthy cause. This year the goal is to raise $50,000 - and we are asking each participant to secure personal sponsorships for this event. If each runner/walker asks just 4 friends to sponsor them in this endeavour for only $10 each, we can surpass this goal!

This year we will be announcing only the Top 5 overall Male & Top 5 overall Female winners on race day. We will post the official race results on the Turkey Trot website the following week with the top 3 racers in each category. For more information, please see the Schedule of Events!
