Pine Knoll Shores Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot 2019

November 28, 2019 | 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Get a jump start on burning off all those excess Thanksgiving Day calories with this scenic run, jog, or walk that takes place along some of the prettiest regions of Pine Knoll Shores. The annual Pine Knoll Shores Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot is a fun and free celebration that is open to vacationers and locals alike, and which features plenty of ways to enjoy the local scenery while enjoying a little community spirit.

The 3.1 mile walk, run, or jog begins at the McNeill Park, which is situated off of Oakleaf Drive, on the edge of the Bogue Sound. The trot officially begins at around 9 a.m., and folks are welcome to go at their own pace through the ensuing winding and pretty course.

This year we will also have a dog walking course that does not go through the country club. The dog course will be 2 miles long and traverse the streets of PKS.  At the finish enjoy coffee, donuts, hot chocolate and waters.

Occurring rain or shine, this fun and family-friendly event is a great way for visitors and locals to get out and enjoy a little active fun before the big Thanksgiving feast.

You may register on race day beginning at 8:15 am.
