The 8th Annual Mimosa Bay Turkey Trot is going VIRTUAL. Find your favorite running path and log your miles with us. We know COVID-19 hasn’t given any of us a whole lot of options, so we are giving you a ton of them. This is virtual, so you have the full week of Thanksgiving (21-27Nov) to hit your goals. Our standard 5k and Kids’ 1/2 mile are back again.
For those who need a little extra challenge to get out of the house and hit the pavement Thanksgiving week, we’ve added a long distance option; complete 20.20 miles, logging your runs over the course of the week… or if you’re striving for that Marathon goal, knock it out in one long run.
There are no prizes for our fastest runners this year; it’s just not realistic to capture results in this environment. Although we will not be able to have our normal raffle and race prizes, we do have some nice prizes for our biggest fundraisers:
- Raise/donate $250 and earn a Marine Raider Foundation Patch.
- Raise/donate $500 and earn a Marine Raider SportTek Polo Shirt.
- Awards for top three fundraisers… details to follow.
Not having a physical event with related operational expenses, this year’s event is FREE to join! Purchase of Race Shirts is optional and will include shipping expenses. Order your shirts by November 5th and get them in time for your run and those photo ops! Save by ordering all your shirts at one time and before November 6th. Shirts will still be available to order 6-27 November, but it’s going to cost us more, so it will cost you more, and you will not receive them until December 14th.
Since 2012, the Mimosa Bay Turkey Trot has raised over $30,000, which is an amazing testament to the tremendous level of community support in Sneads Ferry, NC and the surrounding areas. Let’s lace up those sneakers and #Run4Raiders!
