Race Information

Gobble Gobble...It's Turkey Trot time & we'd love for you to run  with us!   This will be the "2nd helpings" of our Turkey Trots!

We are excited to bring back our Turkey Trot events for 2021!~   Guidelines will be the same as prior, please note the specific dates in  order to qualify for a complimentary race entry!

If you haven't crossed under our finish line this year...that's OK  too...You can still come out and join's just $21, in-person or  virtual.

New for 2021
5K, 10K, 15K or Half Marathon Distances
Virtual 5K, 10K, 15K, or Half Marathon available for only $21.
Swag available for purchase:  Awesome Shirts $15, Hoodies $20 & Finisher Medals available for just $7!

Two weeks before Thanksgiving in 2011 we decided that we wanted to  give back to all the participants who came out to race with us over the  course of the year. Thanksgiving morning seemed to be the perfect time,  and giving them a FREE race would be the perfect way to say thanks.  We're continuing that tradition...If you've crossed under our finish  line in any race from Dec. 1, 2020 - Nov. 14, 2021, you've earned  yourself a FREE 5K spot in ONE of the in-person Turkey Trot races.   (Please note the dates, & running one of our Turkey Trots last year  does NOT qualify for a free entry.)

Everything will be the same as Thanksgiving...but we're letting you race on Sunday, November 21 in Cumming, GA if you want to!


*If you are feeling sick, please stay home.  Face coverings  will be needed for Packet Pickup, Check-in & Race Start; they are  not required while running.  We ask you not to congregate and to  maintain a safe distance from anyone that is not in your party


MS is something that is close to our hearts here at Five Star NTP, so this event will benefit The MS Center of Atlanta.

You can join in by either making a donation, or becoming a fundraiser  yourself.  Anyone who raises $200 or more will be refunded their entry  fee, and anyone who raises $500 or more will also receive a coupon for  $25 off any future race event.
