Up & At ‘Em, Inc. presents the 15thannual Johnson City Turkey Trot. Over the years this race has become an iconic event of the area coined as “The Place To Be Thanksgiving Day.” Although this 5k race is the largest in the Tri Cities area, it has become more than just a race to all as it is also seen as a homecoming or family tradition to do every year with over 4,000 of our closest friends and family.
This year, the Johnson City Turkey Trot will be different as many things have been during 2020. Due to Covid-19 and taking the advice from local health officials, the race will be a virtual option only. We plan to make the the best virtual race possible for our trotting community! We hope you join us!

Although the Turkey Trot is virtual only this year, there is still a lot of work going into the production of this race for each participant. The volunteer jobs look a little different but still important nonetheless. Please consider volunteering to help make this year’s race just as special as it would be any other year.
As a virtual race, you can run anywhere you choose. However, we have also added some course options that you can trot at, if you choose to do so. We do ask that you keep up with your time and distance in order to enter your results into the system.
