Turkey Trot

A long-standing Thanksgiving morning tradition.

Embark on an exciting journey through the heart of Cocoa Beach’s downtown area, weaving your way through the charming residential Cocoa Isles in a spirited road race designed for both runners and walkers alike. This event promises an inclusive experience for participants of all ages.

For the younger enthusiasts, there are specially curated youth runs featuring distances of 1/4, 1/2, and 1 mile, providing a perfect opportunity for the little gobblers to showcase their running prowess.

What makes this race truly special is the chance to infuse Thanksgiving festivities into the event. Attendees are encouraged to don their favorite Thanksgiving costumes, gather friends and family, form whimsical teams, or even carry a symbolic turkey along the route—whatever sparks enthusiasm and motivates you to step out the door! This event is not just a race; it’s a celebration of Thanksgiving, setting the tone for a healthy and active start to the holiday season and establishing a wonderful tradition for years to come.

As you revel in the joy of the race, it’s essential to recognize that your participation contributes to a meaningful cause. The proceeds from the event go towards supporting the Cocoa Beach Jr/Sr High School Cross-Country and Track teams, ensuring that the spirit of community and support extends beyond the race day. Join us in making this Thanksgiving not only memorable but also impactful for the local sports community.
