Registration will open on Tuesday, October 15. Registration will close on November 18 or when we reach 1400 entrants, whichever comes first.

About the Charity

UVA Children's Hospital

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, a new outpatient facility is being planned, providing a bridge between the acute care children receive in the hospital and the ongoing care they manage at home. The UVA Children's Hospital will bring together related pediatric services and specialists for the convenience and comfort of families and provide 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!

Awards Ceremony

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!
