Registration for the 2021 is open.


Walk, Jog, Run or Race ... Everyone is Welcome


The Wild Turkey 5K Trail Run and Walk is going Hybrid this year, with two options to allow everyone to participate. Join us in person for the on site Wild Turkey 5K or participate virtually in the Run Anywhere Wild Turkey 5K. Both race versions support our local Carolina Waterfowl Rescue charity.

Come back in person for the On Site Wild Turkey 5K !! Run, jog or walk our revised, exciting, mostly wooded 5K (3.1 mile) trail at the Union County Agriculture Center on Saturday, September 18, 2021, starting at 8:00am.  This event will be managed  to accommodate all in-force and prudent COVID-19 practices (if they are still necessary) to ensure everyone's safety and enjoyment.


If you are out of town or just want more flexibility join us for the Run Anywhere Wild Turkey 5K. Walk, jog, run or race 3.1 miles anytime, anywhere, instead of meeting and running/walking the specified course with a group at a designated time.
