Lynchburg Turkey Trot
November 26 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
The Lynchburg Turkey Trot is a family fun run and walk that is held on Thanksgiving Day in Lynchburg and all proceeds of this fundraising race support the programs and services of HumanKind. It is the largest 5K in the Lynchburg area drawing nearly 3,000 participants each year.
The race was originally started in 1988 by Don Lucy who grew up at the Presbyterian Homes (now known as HumanKind) as a way to give back and help raise funds and awareness for individuals, children and families across Virginia.
In its history the Lynchburg Turkey Trot has had three course locations including Timberlake Christian School, downtown Lynchburg and now with a start/finish at EC Glass High School on Langhorne Road.
