The event includes a 10K Run and 5K Walk/Run, which are open to runners and walkers of all ages and paces! Last year, the Valparaiso Turkey Trot reached its largest numbers yet and was capped at 4,000, making it the largest race of its kind in Northwest Indiana. The maximum number of participants will stay the same for 2017, so make sure to register early!
