The Blue Talon Bistro Turkey Trot began in 2006 and has become the thing to do in Williamsburg on Thanksgiving morning. In 2016 Blue Talon brought on a nationally recognized race management company, J&A Racing, to partner for the Blue Talon Bistro Turkey Trot 5K to help this wonderful event. With an 8:30AM start, this festive event includes a course that winds through acres of history and beauty in Colonial Williamsburg and through the world-class campus of the second oldest college in the nation, the College of William & Mary.
This twelve annual tradition – which hosts nearly 3,000 participants – provides an excellent opportunity for families to come out and kick off their Thanksgiving Day with fun, fitness and festivity while also supporting local charities in our community.
When you finish the race, you turn the corner and immediately are faced by what has to be best post-5K-buffet anywhere! Fresh baked croissants, illy coffee, adult beverages, fresh fruit & more. Don’t miss the pre & post race raffle, where we give away more than 100 prizes that will all make your Thanksgiving Dinner an even bigger hit! Bottles of wine, flower arrangements, hams, wine glasses, gift certificates, you name it – you can win it! Proceeds from the raffle also benefit local charities.
There are absolutely NO refunds, even in the event of race cancellation, and NO transfers to other runners, NO exceptions.
