About the Mayor’s Turkey Day Run
The Kenosha Mayor’s Turkey Day Run began in 1906 as a Thanksgiving Day morning tradition, although it was not always held annually and stopped in the early 1950s. When the Kenosha Running Club formed in 1978, the race came back to life, growing into a venerated event that draws nearly a thousand runners, through good weather and bad.
Packet Pickup will be at the Kenosha museum, 5500 1st Avenue, 3:00 pm-8:00 pm on Wednesday, Nov. 23rd, and from 7:30 to 8:45 am on race day (15 minutes prior to the start of the race).
The course runs along the Kenosha lakefront on city streets, bike paths, and through parks. Mostly level, the course splits at the one-mile mark of both the 2-mile and 10k routes, with water stops at miles 2 and 4 for 10k runners. Runners must be alert to traffic, as this is not a closed course. Marshaling for the 10k course ends 80 minutes after the start.
Bicycles, roller and/or in-line skates and skateboards are prohibited from the course.
Fruit and water will be available outside the museum after the run for participants.
