Runners Checking InCome run the Saco Turkey Trot – one of the best road races in Southern Maine! We have also recently been named as one of the best Turkey Trots in the country!

The Saco Turkey Trot is the city’s largest holiday tradition.  As a result, we have runners coming from all over the country, in every age group and costume imaginable. Whether you’re a serious runner looking to take our course record, or just a family looking to get some exercise before your big feast, we have something for everyone! Race Day commences with the Tot Trot, followed by both a 5k (walk and run) and 10k (run), and finally, finishes with an award ceremony. Runners can take home awards for age groups, costumes, as well as lottery prizes.

Run FinisherWe’ve made some awesome upgrades in preparation for this year, including professional chip timing, a “lead vehicle” and streamlined the check-in process more than ever before. There will also be some awesome swag for runners who pre-register, and team-based competitions. The kids run will be free again this year, so make sure to bring the kids along so they can be part of this awesome event (and have an awesome bib to bring to show and tell).

Ready to run? Learn more about this year’s event here, and when you’re ready, register here! Make sure to sign up early to make sure you get an awesome, locally printed shirt!
