Race Information

The Turkey Trot STL 5k is a Thanksgiving race happening simultaneously in Downtown St. Louis and nearby areas including St. Charles, Eureka, and Arnold. The run is held in support of local food pantries, and participants are requested to bring a canned food item for donation when picking up their race number.

The USATF-certified 5k course in St. Charles is flat, fast, and friendly. Its out-and-back section allows participants to see and cheer fellow athletes.  There's also a 1/2-mile Youth Race that runs the first and last 1/4 miles of the 5k course.  Together with the 5k course in Downtown St. Louis, the St. Charles edition of Turkey Trot STL are ideal for wheelchair athletes.
