Participants can register in person at Fountain Hills Town Hall or Community Center or online. All registration forms and race fees will be due at sign up. Checks, cash, and Visa or MasterCard are accepted. Registration will remain open through the morning of the event, however higher registration fees will be in place. We will be recognizing the top three finishers in the 5K in each age division for both men and women. Top prize will be our brand new Turkey Trot Medals! Age divisions will be broken down to10-year increments as well as by first, second and third place trotters.

Are you a last minute turkey?

No problem, you can still register on site the morning of the race. Plan to arrive early so staff can be sure to get you signed up and ready to trot.

For the safety of all participants, please leave your dogs at home. Races start promptly at designated times.
