The Madison Jaycees are excited to announce that this year’s Lenny & Joe’s Madison Turkey Trot is going virtual! We look forward to continuing the spirit of the race in a safe, virtual format. Many of the things participants have come to know and love will be incorporated into the 2020 race–look for custom long-sleeve t shirts, downloadable playlists, a virtual program of events on Thanksgiving morning and more!

Social Media

Share your run course, costume, and finisher photos on social media and tag us! Use the hashtag #MadTrot2020 on Instagram and Facebook. We are on Instagram @madisonjayceesct and Facebook @madisonjcct. You can also email us your photos!! Email to turkeytrot@madisonjc.com.

We’ll select both ‘Furthest from Madison’ and ‘Best Costume’ from all the photos we receive and post the winners on social media Monday, Nov. 30, 2020. We can’t wait to see them!


We hope you and your family will continue to make the Madison Turkey Trot a tradition-with the cancellation of our 2020 Madison Triathlon, funds raised from the Trot are more critical than ever to many Shoreline non-profits!


Event details and schedule

Long-sleeve t t-shirts and race bibs will be mailed to the address you provided beginning in mid-October.

We encourage you to walk or run the Turkey Trot between Saturday, Nov. 21 and Saturday, Nov. 28th.

You may run the official Turkey Trot race course in Madison or another 5 mile course of your choosing. Please share your course on social media!

If you have completed the 5 mile run and would like your results to be a part of our Virtual Leaderboard, please email them to themadisonjaycees@gmail.com NO LATER THAN Nov. 30th.


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.
