31st Annual Great Turkey 5K Run / 3K Walk to benefit local area high schools track and cross country teams.
The 31st Annual BGRR Great Turkey 5K Run & 3K Walk
This annual family event includes a 3K Walk (7:30 am start) and 5K Run (8:30 am start) with Thanksgiving themed door prizes and awards, and it is the sole fundraiser for the Bowling Green Road Runners' High School Athletics Program.
Any high schools in the following counties are eligible to apply for financial assistance through the Bowling Green Road Runners:
Allen, Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Grayson, Hart, Logan, Metcalfe, Monroe, Muhlenburg, Ohio, Simpson, Todd, and Warren.
BGRR hopes to aid programs that don't have enough funds to adequately outfit their Track / Cross Country clubs with items such as uniforms and equipment needs. The BGRR officers and board members will review all applications and award as many as possible with the available funds generated from the annual Great Turkey 5K.
Due to participant volume and separate start / finish locations, the 5K event is a gun start / chip finish event. It is strongly recommended that 5K participants pick up their bib chip during the early packet pickup to avoid long lines the morning of the event.
Shirts will NOT be included with registration this year. Our apologies for the recent back and forth with this, but we have had issues with primary sponsors for this race. Shirts will be $10 each. Shirt sizes will be guaranteed for all orders placed by Nov. 7th.
WE HAVE A CAP OF 500 RUNNERS THIS YEAR. WALKERS WILL NOT GET BIBS. ALL 500 BIBS WILL BE ALLOCATED TO RUNNERS ONLY.
