We wish we could have the 2020 race in person.  But we are excited to announce our new Turkey Leg 5K Virtual Run/Walk, which will take the place of the traditional Turkey Leg Run in 2020.  The Virtual Race will be November 26-29 and is open to everyone!  If you have already registered for the Turkey Leg 5K you are automatically entered into the virtual race and do not need to do anything further.
