Description

Join us with our Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot @ Wesley Chapel, FL!

Event Details

The Wiregrass Turkey Trot started with the leadership of three local organizations collaborating with the idea of a family event to benefit local charities in the New Tampa and Wesley Chapel areas. The Rotary Club of New Tampa, the New Tampa YMCA, and FITniche began work on the event late 2012. Thanksgiving morning (November 28) 2013 over 1,400 participants ran in the inaugural 5k and 1-mile fun run events and raised over $20,000.

The positive feedback was overwhelming. The same team built upon the initial success and Thanksgiving morning 2014 over 1,650 participants ran in the 5k and 1-mile fun run. The event raised over $25,000.

The third annual event in 2015 had 2,000 participants and raised $30,000 for charity.

For 2016, we added AdventHealth Wesley Chapel Foundation as an organizing partner. The fourth running had 2,200 participants and raised $35,000 for charity. In 2017, we had 2,212 joining us in the rain for some sloppy fun and we raised over $32,000. In 2018 and 2019, more than 2,200 runners, walkers and wonderful sponsors each year helped us raise more than $104,500 for the community. For 2020 the Wiregrass Turkey Trot went virtual bringing our eight-year charitable total to more than $262,500.

All proceeds from the Wiregrass Turkey Trot events go to local charities.
