About this race

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. 2020 has been a year with little to no opportunities to display the fitness most of us have still been working diligently to find. Hammer & Axe is thrilled to 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. In an unpredictable year, some familiarity provides a welcome change—and 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. The race will take place on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, 11/26) 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, 11/27.
