Brainerd Turkey Run

Brainerd, MN


Join us for the 10th Annual Brainerd Turkey Run on November 28, 2019 Thanksgiving morning. This holiday tradition includes a 5k run & 1 mile walk to benefit the Shriners Hospitals for Children. 


The Turkey Run is a great holiday tradition for individuals and families that focuses on having fun, giving back to the less fortunate and enjoying a healthy way to start their holiday season. 

You will start and finish at the Brainerd Amory but will get to run through the County Fair Grounds and through parts of industrial Brainerd that many people do not normally experience. This is a great first time 5k course or a fast course for a seasoned runner. 

Packet Pickup will start Wednesday 5pm-7pm at the Brainerd Armory. It will reopen again on race morning from 7:30am-8:45am. Registration is also available at those times so bring your family and friends who are still on the fence. Race starts at 9am. Runners line up first and walkers behind them.
