Turkey Trot Course Information



Race Start Location

All races start in front of E.C. Glass High School on Langhorne Road. — NEW RACE COURSE FOR 2016!!

Why is there a NEW Course for 2016?

The city of Lynchburg is undergoing a major construction project in downtown Lynchburg for the next few years, the Downtown Utility & Streetscape Project! Ultimately, this will add to the runner experience of our race in future years, but for 2016 and 2017 we are “temporarily relocating” the Turkey Trot Course to a familiar Start/Finish line on Langhorne Road in front of EC Glass High School. One of the drawbacks to using this new course route, is the limited amount of time we have for road closures causing us to not offer a youth 1-miler race for these two years. We encourage participants of ALL ages to run, walk, stroll at any pace to continue participating.

We know you LOVE downtown Lynchburg and so do we…we will get the Turkey Trot back there as soon as we are able! Thanks for your patience and your support as we work with the City to overcome these challenges.

Learn more about the Downtown Utility & Streetscape Project on their website.
