The Baptist Health Turkey Trot Miami offers family fun for all runners, joggers and walkers with a distance for every age and pace.
The 5K and 10K will take place in beautiful Tropical Park, a Miami-Dade Park. The start line, finish line, and turkey day tailgate finish festival are all centrally located within the Tropical Park.
Parents wishing to run with strollers are welcome. However, those running with strollers are required to begin within the last wave and must adhere to the stroller acknowledgement.
Our course is wheelchair friendly, and we gladly welcome para-athletes to participate.
Staggered Start Times!
The Baptist Health Turkey Trot Miami 5K/10K features wave starts to improve the flow of runners on the course. We made this change in 2017 based on participant feedback to ensure that the race experience is more efficient and, most of all, enjoyable for everyone! The field of 6,000 runners will be assigned into waves based on estimated pace, released at 2-minute intervals:
Wild Turkeys – Corral A (8:25 and under pace per mile)*
The Flock – Corral B (8:26 to 10:30 pace per mile)*
Gobblers – Corral C (10:31 & over)
Tail Feathers – Corral D (Strollers & Walkers)
*In order to be placed in Corrals A & B, athletes MUST send proof of results from a prior race with a pace within the cut-off times listed above to our Athlete Services before October 1, 2021 (11:59 pm ET). Participants may move to a slower corral without officially changing their corral assignment, but any athlete who wishes to move up in corrals must contact our Athlete Services with proof of a faster time.
Event the tiniest of turkeys can race! Register your little ones (ages 2-9) to take to their own course this Thanksgiving.
