Thanksgiving Day,
Thursday, November 24, 2016.

Run starts at 10 am and Walk starts at 10:05 am

Madison Town Green,
Madison CT

 

 

The Madison Jaycees will host our annual Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day featuring a 5-mile road race and a 2-mile

family fitness walk. We are excited to announce two changes for the 2016 race: longtime event sponsor and Madison

Jaycees supporter Lenny & Joe’s Fish Tale will be our Title Sponsor this year, and the event will move for one year only to

the Madison Green due to construction within Hammonasset State Park. We are excited for this opportunity to showcase

the Green and the town that has supported our fundraising event for so many years. The 5 mile race and 2 mile family walk

will begin and end on the Madison Green and will feature picturesque views of Long Island Sound and some of

Madison’s most scenic waterfront neighborhoods.

 

Course Map and further information to come soon.

 

CONVENIENT TIMING SYSTEM

We will be using the improved B-tag timing system again this year so please review these instructions to receive an accurate time. The timing device is integrated into the race bib so please make sure:

  •     Race bib is clearly visible on the front of the torso
  •     Race bib is unaltered and unmodified (Do not fold or wrinkle)
  •     Race bib is pinned in all four corners
  •     Race bib is not covered (jackets, runner belts, water bottles, etc.)

These are single use timing devices so they do not need to be returned at the end of the race. For more information, visit ChronoTrack.

TURKEY TROT DEDICATED TO EVENT DIRECTOR AND FRIEND DAVE PARCELLS

Dave Parcells, two-term Madison Jaycee President passed away suddenly in April of 2007. Dave was a loving and extremely involved father to his two children, a tremendous leader, fundraiser, and an inspiration to everyone he met. He was also the oldest person to swim an English Channel double-crossing, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars to benefit local charities. Dave touched and inspired the lives of everyone he knew, and will be deeply missed.
