Turkey Trot Returns to Davidson This Thanksgiving 2022

by | Oct 20, 2022


The Second Annual Davidson Turkey Trot 5k, presented by Ingersoll Rand, returns this Thanksgiving! On November 24th, 2022, the 5k race, starting at the top of South Street and finishing at the Davidson Green is sure to be a fantastic family event!

Last year, the Trot rallied over 1000 participants and donated roughly $25k to beneficiaries in the community and beyond including Davidson-Cornelius Child Development Center, Feed NC and Davidson Lifeline, through the Rotary Club of Davidson, as well as to Gift of Life International. In its first year, the Turkey Trot became the largest event of its kind in Davidson.

Once again, the presenting sponsor of the Davidson Turkey Trot is Ingersoll Rand. The event is hosted and facilitated by Caroline and Mariano Doble, owners of The Davidson Village Inn. Other integral sponsors include Seyer Art, Ace Hardware of Cornelius, Davidson Family Medicine, Archer’s Towing, Wade Associates, Carrburritos, PostNet Davidson, Famous Toastery, Copeland Richards, Main Street Books, Mandolino’s Pizza, Flatiron Kitchen + Taphouse , Ladd McCall & Associates and Richards Group Real Estate.

In 2022, the Trot is gearing up to supersede last year’s fundraising totals by giving even more to charitable organizations in the area. With a special thanks to their many local sponsors, the event is also sure to offer a fun and exciting experience to its participants. The top 3 male and female overall winners will be awarded a Yeti Cooler, thanks to the generosity of Ace Hardware of Cornelius.

Runners can expect this new holiday tradition to be complete with family-friendly fun, a great course, and an even greater cause. If you would like to participate, we encourage you to sign up now as prices continue to increase as the event date approaches. October 23rd, is the last day to guarantee a t-shirt with your registration! Head to the link below to register today:
