Description

Fit & Able is proud to bring back the Turkey Chase! We hope you enjoyed the delicious Thanksgiving eats with your friends and family. But now it's time to burn off the turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and pie! With three distances - including a 5K, 10K, and 20K - you can choose your challenge!

Invite your friends, pick your race, and burn off Thanksgiving dinner!

Although we had planned for a great live race this year we are going VIRTUAL! That means wherever you are - near or far - you can participate in a great race to support an amazing organization. All you need to do is run wherever you want and submit your times online! It's really fun and super easy!

All runners will get a Turkey Chase embroidered knit hat and finishers medal. Since there isn't a race day packet pickup all participants have the option for their packets to be shipped or retrieved at a curbside pickup. Each packet can hold up to 2 hats AND 2 medals. All packets will be mailed out after the event.

Scroll down for more details about how you can win great prizes and swag by referring people to sign up with you!

The Turkey Chase is part of Fit & Able's Omega Sports Virtual Free-for-All Race Series

Information

Race Location: Anywhere you want to run! You can run wherever you are comfortable: on the greenways, in your neighborhood, even around your living room. Just stay safe, have fun, and log the distance you signed up to run. If you're looking for some great place to run we recommend checking out Cary's many parks and 80+ miles of greenway trails. You can find a complete map here: https://www.townofcary.org/recreation-enjoyment/bike-cary/maps  

Course Information: Course conditions depend on the weather and where you choose to run. There will not be an athletic trainer or any water stations provided on the course other than public restrooms and water fountains available at parks. A virtual race is BYOB! 

Events: Everyone is welcome to participate!  All events are now virtual so there are no chip-timed results. All results must be submitted by participants; we highly recommend tracking your run on RaceJoy, which can automatically submit your finish time. All Fit & Able Productions, Inc. events are inclusion events: anyone of any age, skill-level, or ability can participate in any race!

Race Souvenirs: All participants will get a special Turkey Chase knit hat and finishers medal (guaranteed if registered by November 1st; first come first serve thereafter). Since there is no pre-race or race day packet pickup all packets for purchased shirts or medals must be shipped for $10 per packet or retrieved at a curbside pickup. Packets will be mailed out after the event. Each packet can hold up to 2 hats AND 2 medals.

Awards: Awards are provided by Omega Sports. Save your Turkey Chase bib number to get 20% off in store at Omega Sports!
