Brainerd Turkey Run

Brainerd, MN

Join us for the 8th annual Brainerd Turkey Run on Thanksgiving morning. This holiday tradition includes a 5k run & 1 mile walk to benefit the Shriners Hospitals for Children. 


The Turkey Run is a great holiday tradition for individuals and families that focuses on having fun, giving back to the less fortunate and enjoying a healthy way to start their holiday season. 

New Location this year! This race has grown so much over the years with all of your support, Thank You!! With that growth we have outgrown the Arb and have found a new venue, The Brainerd Armory!  We have also come up with a new route, one that will be plowed and cleared for all to enjoy safely(if snow falls like it has the past few years). It is a flat fast course with new scenery taking you through South Brainerd.

Packet Pickup will start Wednesday 5pm-7p at the Armory. It will reopen again on race morning from 7:30-8:45. Registration is also available at those times so bring our family and friends who are still on the fence. Race starts at 9am. Runners line up first and walkers behind them.
