The 2021 Dan Gibbons Turkey Trot will be offering TWO OPTIONS:

Option #1: Our IN-PERSON race will once again take place in downtown Elmhurst at 9 AM on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 2021. We’re thrilled to return to our race course and look forward to seeing everyone Thanksgiving morning.

Our Honorary Starter will be Dick Weber, a 3rd generation lifelong resident of Elmhurst who served with the United States Marine Corps in Vietnam and is a Purple Heart recipient.

Option #2: Our VIRTUAL option is offered for those who may be immunocompromised, high risk, cautious around crowds, or unable to travel to Elmhurst on Thanksgiving Day.

Choose the event that is right for you when you register.

(Note ~ The registration deadline for the virtual event is October 31.)

We will be adhering to all local and state safety procedures. Visit our FAQ page to learn more.
