Race History

The Mimosa Bay Turkey Trot has raised over $35,000 since it started back in 2012 as a small, neighborhood race with a handful of runners.  Through the years, it has grown immensely thanks in large part to the hard work of race volunteers who coordinated each and every detail of the race, as well as the enthusiasm of the residents of Mimosa Bay and surrounding neighborhoods in Sneads Ferry!  The outpouring of support from the local community is a true testament to the “Gung Ho!” spirit that is alive and well throughout the areas surrounding MARSOC Headquarters in Stone Bay, NC!  Let’s lace up those running/walking shoes and register for our #TurkeyTrot4Raiders!  Sign up today!
