The Hammer & Axe Turkey Trot was created out of a desire for racing we've heard expressed from our athletes, and the running population as a whole. Hammer & Axe is thrilled to once again provide a chance for our community of athletes, and the running community as a whole, to compete against themselves, the clock, and other runners virtually.
There's nothing more familiar than the Turkey Trot. A ritual performed by runners every Thanksgiving. Wake up early, push yourself outside of your comfort zone, and then kick your feet up for the rest of the day and enjoy family and food. We want all runners to not only run their local Turkey Trot, but to enter that time amongst the greater U.S. (and international) running community for some one-of-a-kind prizes.
The race will take place on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, 11/25) and is open to runners of all ages, abilities, and nationalities. Competitors will provide their result through a GPS activity uploaded to Final Surge and will compete for prizes that will be awarded on Friday, 11/26.
*In addition to the prizes below, all registered participants will be entered into a raffle for a pair of Adidas TME Boston 10s in your size!
