12th annual Spartan Turkey Trot is IN-PERSON!

(with a virtual option)

Back together as a Community!

This event boasts a neighborhood 5K Walk/Run, the Spartan Mile, & Kids Races!

MVHS Sports Boosters is proud to present the 12th Annual Spartan Turkey Trot this coming Thanksgiving weekend 2021! We are so happy to announce that we will be hosting this year's event IN-PERSON! However, we know some of you may still prefer a virtual option. So this year, 2021, we are offering both in-person and virtual!

People of all ages are encouraged to participate in the 5k Run & Walk and the Spartan Mile (1-mile). Kids are welcome to participate in the 5k and/or Spartan Mile + the 60/400 yd dash races (aka kids races).

Prizes are given to the top 3 M/F finishers of the 5k and the top M/F finishers of the Spartan Mile. Any virtual participant that submits a result can download/print a finisher's certificate. Kids in the kids races will receive a finisher's ribbon.

All proceeds benefit the MVHS athletics department and supporting teams/clubs.

We hope you'll come out on Thanksgiving weekend to gather with friends, family and neighbors, to have some fun, celebrate the holiday, burn some calories, and support an organization making a difference for the kids in our community!

Let's keep this holiday tradition alive!

We are dedicating this year's Spartan Turkey Trot to Roy Lambertson.

As a founding pillar of the Spartan Turkey Trot, Roy left an everlasting impression on this race. Thanks, Roy. We will carry your baton forward proudly. You made us all better people.

Help us honor his legacy by wearing the Roy Sticker, given out at packet pick-up, on your bib.
