Less Turkey, More Trot – Virtual Race


November 18 -26, 2023

How it works:

Choose your distance (12 km, 24 km, 33.4 km, or all 3). Complete your chosen course between November 19 and November 27. All routes start and end from the McKenny Trailhead at Margaret McKenny Campground. No proof of run is required, however, we do encourage you to send in a photo of your run and photos for a chance to win a prize! You’ll need to record your “total elapsed time” on UltraSignUp when you complete your run.

• The best race photos (Be creative)
• Youngest runners
• Hidden Strava segment winner
• Random raffles
• And more!

There are three distances: 7.4 miles (12 km), 14.9 miles (24 km), 22 miles (33.4 km) and all start from the McKenny Trailhead in Capitol Forest. This is a different trailhead with slightly longer distances than last year. ** The course will be marked but if you are unfamiliar with the area, be sure to take the map with you. **

We recommend downloading the free Avenza app from Friend’s of Capitol Forest’s website and adding our georeferenced course map. See our course map below. Email [email protected] if you are unable to access the map.
