Our Cause

Why do we run? In 2016 a record breaking $60,000 was donated to our Outreach Partners!

Food Drive

Thanksgiving Food Drive

In 2015 our non-perishable food drive for the Arm in Arm food pantry was a huge success, so we’re doing it again this year! Look for the Arm in Arm van parked near the registration tables and drop off canned goods & non-perishables during packet pick-up and/or race morning.

View our guide to donating food


We are always looking for volunteers! Join the team and help us with Race Planning, Race Day (registration, course support), Race Week (race bib/shirt pickup) or Advance Team (flyers, signage).

Contact us at racedirector@trinityturkeytrot.org so we can add you to our volunteer list and reach out when we’re ready for action!

ATTN Students:  This is a GREAT way to add community service hours!
