Milford Turkey Trot Race Description
Join us for the 1st annual Milford Turkey Trot at 9:00 AM Thanksgiving morning along Gulf Street, Buckingham Ave and New Haven Ave. All are welcome so please spread the word and make this an event to remember.
100% of the registration proceeds from the event will go directly to the Calf Pen Meadow PTA (https://sites.google.com/
Feel free to run/walk alone, with your kids, with strollers, or even with your pets on leashes as all routes are on Milford sidewalks. No roads will be closed for this event, all street laws must be followed by participants at all times. It is not a race, it is a fun run/walk charity event, be safe at all times.
This casual 3+ mile run/walk starting at James Park (Gulf Street and New Haven Avenue) starts out heading South past Gulf Beach, makes the first turn next to Calf Pen Meadow heading Northwest on Buckingham Avenue and the last turn near Jimmy's Apizza heading West on New Haven Avenue creating a full loop back to James Park. If 3 miles is too far for you or your little ones, two shorter out and back options will be clearly marked heading the same direction to Gulf Beach. One is 1 mile total and the second going all the way to Gulf Beach is exactly 2 miles. Both have sidewalks the entire way making it a wonderful run/walk for any age and ability.
Online advanced registration is $12 per adult and $5 per school aged child. (dogs and kids under 5 are free) Unfortunately no in-person registration the day of the event can be supported at this time.
Virtual participants are also encouraged to join the fun remotely on Turkey Day. You can still support the great cause and get some exercise in before eating your Thanksgiving food by registering as a virtual participant.
Volunteers and sponsors are necessary for the event to be successful. If you can support in this front, please reach out to Tor at Tor.Blackstad@gmail.com with the email title including the words "Milford Turkey Trot".
Thank you for your support and looking forward to trotting with all of you.
COVID Safety Plan:
Social distancing and masks will be required before, during and after the event. Walk/run participants may remove their masks when out on the course but are encouraged to maintain social distancing at all times to prevent any transmission of germs. Participants will start in waves based on the selected route length and the anticipated speed to ensure the fastest runners are in front followed by the slower walkers in back reducing potential contact between participants. There will be no on-site registration and no post-race awards or gathering this year. No food or drink can be provided by the race so please be sure to bring your own source of nutrients and hydration if you anticipate these will be needed during the event. Hand sanitizer will be available free of charge for the community to use as needed.
Please note that while our plan is to conduct the Turkey Trot in person, we are subject to the direction and authority of all State and local health authorities. Should the Federal Government, State of Connecticut, City of Milford or other heath authority issue any directive that such activities like the Turkey Trot cannot or should not move forward in person, the Turkey Trot reserves the right to alter the event to virtual with or without notice. Should the Turkey Trot alter to a virtual event, no refunds shall be provided to any runners or participants.
