On Thanksgiving morning in Duck, the Annual ADVICE 5K Turkey Trot is as traditional as Pumpkin Pie! Our family and community tradition is for all ages and abilities… a non-sanctioned 5K loop, beginning on Scarborough Lane and finishing up with some BIG FUN!
All participants, whether running or walking, should be physically able to finish and be off the course within 60 minutes. Everyone receives the same amenities that include a long-sleeve event tee along with a Goody Bag full of treats. As is tradition, only our First Male & First Female Runners, First Male & Female Youth Runners (10 and under), in addition to our First Walker earn one of the infamous PUMPKIN PIES from Sweater Box Confections! (There are no other awards or age group recognition.)
Once you’ve finished, Turkey Trotters enjoy friendship, refreshments, and music at the POST RACE PARTY presented by the Outer Banks Popcorn Shoppe, Sweater Box Confections, and Wave Pizza Cafe! And when everyone’s crossed the Finish Line, the drawing for some terrific prizes begins!
Be part of the tradition – see you on Thanksgiving!
