The Turkey Trot is Right Around the Corner!

Posted on: August 15, 2019

Join us for a free Thanksgiving morning tradition at Lake Ellyn Park! The Turkey Trot 5-Mile Predicto Race will kick-off at 8 a.m. sharp on November 28th.

Participants are encouraged to predict their race completion time at the event (no timing devices are allowed on the course) and dress in their best Thanksgiving gear for a chance to win prizes. The race is open to runners, joggers and walkers of all ages. Strollers are welcome, but please leave pets at home.

This year, we’re once again teaming up with the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry to collect non-perishable food items and cash donations at the event.

The course will begin and end at Lake Ellyn Park (645 Lenox Road, Glen Ellyn). No registration is required, but runners must sign a waiver inside the Lake Ellyn Boathouse before the race begins.
