pearland-turkey-trot-logoRegistration has officially opened for the first annual Pearland Turkey Trot, and is set to be an instant hit. With a beautiful scenic route through the city of Pearland, inaugural finisher items, beautiful fall weather, and fun family activities, the Pearland Turkey Trot plans to be an event where memories are made.

“Pearland is growing faster than ever right now,” says Lauren Smith and Randi Schooley, founders of the Pearland Turkey Trot. “We are excited to showcase this beautiful city, support the strong running community, and bring people together on this very family festive occasion.”

“Turkey Trots have been part of the Thanksgiving Day tradition for over 150 years and we are thrilled to have Pearland, Texas join the fun!”

The race will take place on Thanksgiving morning (Thursday, November 24, 2016) at The Pearland Stadium (3775 S. Main, Pearland, TX 77581). The race will feature a 4-mile or 6-mile walk/run, 1-mile family walk, and a Tiny Tot Kids K (for children under the age of 12). Every registration comes with the inaugural Pearland Turkey Trot long-sleeve participant t-shirt, entry to the post-race party, and delicious post-race food & beverages. Kids K participants will receive a participation medal.

The 6-Mile Run will start at 7:30 AM, with the 4-mile following it at 7:50 AM. The course time limit is three hours. The 1-Mile Family Walk will take off at 8:30 AM. Kids (and parents can join too!) will tackle the Kids K at 9:00 AM. The whole family is invited to the post-race Thanksgiving party where activities, food, and beverages will be served.

The 4-mile and 6-mile finishers will receive a Pearland Turkey Trot medal. Awards will be given to the first place finisher in each 10-year age division for both the 4-mile and 6-mile run.

6-mile registration is $45, 4-mile is $35, Family 1-mile walk is $25, and the Tiny Tot Kids K is $15. Registration is currently available online athttps://raceroster.com/events/2016/9689/pearland-turkey-trot. Prices will increase November 21st and on race day.

Additionally, The Pearland Turkey Trot is dedicated to giving back to their wonderful community. We are pleased to announce that the official charity of the Pearland Turkey Trot will be the Forever Parks Foundation of Pearland. The Forever Parks Foundation of Pearland is an enthusiastic advocate for the City’s Parks & Recreation Department — committed to encouraging and mobilizing philanthropic support from across the community and beyond.

“The Forever Parks Foundation is very excited to partner with iRun productions for the inaugural Turkey Trot in Pearland,” says Michelle Graham, President of the Foundation. “This promises to be a great introduction for both of our organizations. A professionally run race that benefits future parks and recreation facilities and programs….it is a match that just makes sense and we look forward to the continued growth success of the partnership.”


The Pearland Turkey Trot is also calling for sponsors for this year’s event, ranging from title sponsor to supporting levels. This event is a great opportunity for local businesses and organizations to support a new event in the Pearland area, that will in time become a family tradition in years to come.
