Turkey Trot

A Message from Sarah Chan, Mayor Don Iveson's partner, thanking all those who are Turkey Trotting and who support the United Way.

Do something SMALL to be part of something BIG

The 55th Annual Turkey Trot is a fun run for anybody and everybody. We have a flat and scenic 4km route that circles North Campus and can be easily walked or ran by anyone.  Our 8km route is more of a challenge with Emily Murphy park hill hitting you at the 6km mark. As part of the official U of A United Way Campaign a portion of your registration will be donated to the United Way.

Come out and be a part of one of the biggest campus life events this Fall!

What You Get

  • Student's Union Hosted Pancake Breakfast when you finish
  • First 500 registrants to confirm their race data during pick-up times will receive a Turkey Trot t-shirt.
  • Every registrant running will receive a race bib and timing chip, walkers will not.
