2019 Turkey Trot Results

The Inaugural Fayetteville Turkey Trot will give the entire community the opportunity to come together and celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday before heading home to cook and spend the day with family and friends. With two distance options of a timed 5K or an untimed 1 Mile there will be a competitive aspect of the event with Overall, Age Groups Awards, and a Team and Individual Costume Contest. Non-competitive participants can enjoy a walk through scenic downtown Fayetteville before a day of large portions, football and shopping.
