CFA Turkey Trot Race Description

The most fun 5K/10K in Bismarck/Mandan! Join us Thanksgiving morning for a brisk run along the mighty Missouri River! This is our 31st year and there is always something new.

We are working on making our Turkey Trot as safe as possible for our volunteers and participants. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation.

Here are the steps we are taking:

  • Registration will be online only. We are minimizing touchpoints throughout our process. Online registrations WILL be accepted through Thanksgiving morning.
  • We are spreading out packet pick up for the entire week leading up to Thanksgiving, instead of two days. This will be for packet pick up ONLY not for registration (ALL Registration will need to be online)
  • Start times will be VERY staggered to minimize the number of runners at the starting gate and on the course at any one time. Start times will be a time-trial type set up. Starting times will be assigned in order of registration. 
  • All volunteers and staff at the race will wear masks.
  • A virtual race option is available for those who wish to physically distance even further. Virtual racers will be eligible for awards as long as their times are recorded by noon on November 26.

 

Events

  • 5K Computer timed run

  • 5K Computer timed  race walk

  • 10K Computer timed run

  • 5K Family Fun Walk (non-timed)

Start Time 9:15 am with staggered starts.

Packet Pick-up

  • Will be at the CFA Office between November 19 and 25

The CFA Turkey Trot is the major fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Association of North Dakota. Every day we are one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis, but until then, our friends with CF have to continue to fight to breathe.

 

Costumed runners are encouraged! Let's see those Turkey hats! We will have a variety of prizes for our best dressed and most spirited runners!

Can I register the day of the Turkey Trot?

Can I register in person or by mail?

We Couldn't Do It Without You!

The Turkey Trot is an amazing event that helps CF patients get through the tough times. The event brings together thousands of people all helping an amazing organization. As a mother of a child with CF, I didn't know how much I would depend on the CFA to help our family. With recent drug changes and hospitalizations I now know the full meaning about helping CF patients and their families "Breathe Easier"!
