Final Note to 2018 Turkey Trot Participants

Thank you again for participating in the 2018 Orange City Turkey Trot, the race was a huge success!

  • We had our largest ever number of registrants at 193 and our largest amount of funds raised with over $5000 to be split between Hunger Free Kids of Sioux County and Trinity Youth Missions.
  • We had a couple challenges due to the large numbers. If you did not receive a t-shirt and did not write your name, shirt size and contact info on the order sheet at packet pickup – please email octurkeytrot@gmail.com with that information before Monday, November 26 when we will place our final order. The shirts should be available in approximately 3 weeks.
  • Our results ceremony had several errors due to some results not registering. The current results posted online are now official.
  • SAVE THE DATE: The 2019 Orange City Turkey Trot will be held on November 28, 2019
    • We invite input on the race. As a volunteer driven event, we know things won’t be perfect but we are open to any constructive criticism. Email us at octurkeytrot@gmail.com.
    • If you have suggestions as to the 2019 charity partner, we are open to suggestions.

Finally, we again want to say a big THANK YOU for participating in the race this year and look forward to 2019.
