Courses – Look for the Old County Courthouse for the starting area

The 5 mile run and 1 mile walk courses will start & finish in downtown Georgetown (near 7th & Main).

The 5 mile run has the same great course from last year.  It is important that you turn right on 11th St and not left on 10th St on the 1 Mile walk course. The course heads up Main St with a right turn on 11th St and then cruises down Austin Ave (STAY in the curb lane) with great views of the San Gabriel River, into San Gabriel Park (E. Morrow Ave). During this part of the course please stay to the right on the street. After crossing over the San Gabriel River stay to your left on the street and enjoy your run through historic Georgetown, before returning to the square and the finish line.  Georgetown Turkey Trot 5 Mile Run course. There will be a water stop on the 5 mile run course at the entrance to the Dog Park.

The 1 mile walk is an out-and-back from 7th & Main up Main St, left turn on 10th St, left turn on Church St and turnaround at 5th St. Very important that you line up on the left side of the Main St at the starting line as you will be turning left on 10th St BEFORE the 5 Mile runners turn right on 11th St.  Georgetown Turkey Trot 1 Mile Walk course.

Water, Electrolyte replacement, and refreshments will be provided after the race.

Both courses are stroller and walker friendly, but please start behind the runners. Dogs must keep their owners on a leash.

Free Kids’ Fun Run – Starts at 7:45 (prior to the 5 mile run & 1 mile walk)

This is for children only, but parents and family may run with the child of course. The course is an out and back.  $5 donation and/or nonperishable food for The Caring Place.  All children will receive a finisher’s ribbon.

Parking – Carpooling is highly encouraged

VERY critical, do not park on Main St (between 7th & 11th Streets), Church St (between 4th & 10th Streets), or the parking lot between Main, Church, 9th, and 10th Streets).  There are plenty of free city parking lots and parking spots on various streets, especially West of Austin Ave.  See the link for downtown Georgetown for best place to park and map to Georgetown.  Map of Georgetown. Remember to only park in legal spots.  Careful crossing Austin Ave to get to the Georgetown square.

T-Shirt Guarantee Policy

Guaranteed T-Shirt for entries received by 11/6. Those that registered after 11/6 are while supplies last.  This allows for more money to the charities and not into leftover shirts.  If you didn’t get a shirt, check back after you finish the Turkey Trot, any shirts not claimed will be given to those that didn’t receive a shirt.  We will not be holding shirts after race day pick-up.  Thank you for your understanding.

Race Bib & Timing

Race bibs are donated by Road ID and should be worn on the front of every participant.  It is crucial for distributing awards.  You will notice they are color coded and this helps us with the awards.

We have decided to make this an untimed event. However, Data Event Solutions has donated a digital timing clock that will be at the finish.  By not paying for a timing company we will be able to provide hot meals to an adult for an entire year.  Thank you for your understanding.
