Powell Turkey Trot

4-Miler and Wobble ’till You Gobble Kid’s Fun Run
7th Annual


The Experience

Come and celebrate family, friends and fitness as we indulge in the beauty of Historic Downtown Powell while completing this 4-mile tree lined course. The Thanksgiving festivities will begin at Village Green Pavilion.

The Tradition

Each Thanksgiving we look for opportunities to give back. The Powell Turkey Trot is no exception. In addition to our book drive and making a financial donation to the A Kid Again organization, we will also be supporting the Olentangy Elementary School’s art program. Upon completion of the Wobble ‘Till You Gobble kids race the kids will be rewarded with a finely crafted award, created by our local elementary students.

Free Craft Beer or Custom Socks

We don’t drink wine and our mothers make the best pie. To show our appreciation for your attendance and in honor of your accomplishment, each participant 21 and over will receive their choice of craft beer or custom socks.* Participants in the 4-miler under 21 will receive custom socks.

2020 Race Shirts

Will be released early fall.
