2020 VIRTUAL Event Information











The James Madison High School Band will be hosting the 18th Annual *VIRTUAL* Vienna Turkey Trot 5K/10K -- this year, featuring a Dog Walk!  Due to state and county restrictions, this year's event will be VIRTUAL ONLY. The good news? You pick the day, the time, and the course! This year we even have an option for you proud pet owners who have been giving Fido (more than) regular workouts over the past several months.

All proceeds benefit the JMHS "Pride of Vienna" Band and the Vienna Volunteer Fire Department, so come on out and support these two wonderful Vienna institutions!

Be sure to submit your time to Racewire and take plenty of photos of your event! Tag us on social media with #viennaturkeytrot


November 22, 2020 through November 28, 2020 -- all of Thanksgiving week!

Race Time:


Whenever you want! Morning, night, hot, cold -- you pick the time and the conditions that you like best, even if that means your basement treadmill FTW.

Make sure you send your time to Racewire when you've completed your race, and post those pics to social media using #viennaturkeytrot !


You plan your own course, or even run/walk on your treadmill! We will post some route ideas in the coming weeks; see "course" tab for the route we used in previous years. 


Instead of T-shirts, this year all VTT participants will receive a special edition Vienna Turkey Trot knit beanie! Wear it when you log your miles and give a shout-out to other participants sporting theirs. 


That said, it looks like there's sufficient interest and we will likely place a second order for hats, for delivery in early December. If you're interested in that option, please check the appropriate box on your registration form.
