About the Turkey Trot:


Every Thanksgiving VIRR hosts a run up in Kula at Rice park called the Trukey Trot.
The Turkey Trot is a unique race where the winners are the runners who are closest
to guessing their time in the 16 mile or 8.6 mile runs not who crosses the finish
line first. No timing devises are allowed.. no cheating …

Prizes/Awards:


The Turkey trot is truly a race where it is not about winning or loosing.
The runners who are closest to guessing their times win !!
Because there are so many runners at it takes time to calculate over 250 peoples times and awards are mailed to the winners. Results are posted the weekend after the race.
