Start your Thanksgiving Day by giving back and giving thanks with a fun Walk/Run!

Turkey Trot Fun Facts
Everyone joins in the fun. . . Some groups show up with as many as 15 family members who are in town for the holiday.
Rain or Shine
There are 1 mile, 3 mile, and 5 mile courses that travel through the Blossom Road neighborhood in Windham. The start time is 9:00 am Thanksgiving morning, regardless of the weather.
All Ages Welcome
Participants range in age from 3 weeks to 96 years, and they run, walk, bike, rollerblade, roll their wheelchairs or are pushed and pulled in strollers and wagons. Many have made the Turkey Trot part of their family’s Thanksgiving traditions.
A Kitchen Clock & A Ladder
The Turkey Trot is an unofficial race. There are no numbers or chip technology. The official timer is a kitchen clock sitting on a step ladder. Some people are intimidated at the thought of participating in a “Race”; the reality is that only about 30% of our Trotters actually run.
Most Trotters Return
Once people experience the Trot for the first time, they usually keep coming back. Participants have a great time; friends and neighbors chat while strolling around the neighborhood, returning college students enjoy a mini reunion with friends, younger children like biking among the excitement, and we always see some impressively competitive runners.
