Parking: A little planning will save you a lot of time.

Please carpool if possible. There are three main parking lots. The easiest to access is located in front of the Department of Revenue buildings. This lot is on the west side of Capital Circle between Merchants Row and Shumard Oak. It can be accessed from Capital Circle wheter driving north or south and it can be accessed from Tram Road. Please be careful when crossing Capital Circle. Use the cross walks at Merchants Row or Shumard Oaks. The second lot is on the east side of Captial Circle, also between Merchants Row and Shumard Oak. It lies between the State Office Buildings and Capital Cirlce. You can access it from either end (Shumard Oak or Merchants Row), but plan to arrive early. The longest lines usually are the cars trying to turn onto Merchancts Row from Capital Circle. The lines to enter the lots grow as the start time approaches. The third lot is south of Shumard Oak. It is the first lot on the right if you turn onto Shumard Oak from Capital Circle. IF there is a line at Merchants Row, then continue through to Shumard Oak. The Northside Kiwanis Club has been helping runners get parked for more than 14 years, so please thank them for their help on race day! You can find more, including a map, at parking.

Three Great Causes to Support

For many years now, Turkey Trot has raised major funds for The Kearny Center, The Refuge House, and the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Big Bend. We also have worked hard to keep race entry fees low, including great discounts for families. The best gift you can give is just to join us on Thanksgiving Day for your favorite race distance. However, if you feel you have been blessed enough to do a little extra on Thanksgiving Day, become a Turkey Trot Hero by making a donation to one or more of these worthy entities. Your entire donation will go directly to the group(s) you designate.

Turkey Trot Hero

If you want to contribute to one of our great causes it is as simple as entering an amount next to the Turkey Trot Heroes line on the Eventbrite registration page. You can donate as much as you want, but if you donate a minimum of $30 (Hero designation) you will receive a commemorative gift recognizing your generosity. If you donate $50 or more you will receive a Turkey Trot Super Hero designation and will receive two commemorative gifts. If you want to register for the race as well, then you can choose one of the registration categories below the Turkey Trot Hero or Super Hero designation. All heroes will receive a gold star designation on their race bibs.
