  • What is a Virtual Walk or Run?

    It simply means that you can go for a walk or run anywhere in the world. In the case of the IRIS Turkey Trot it means you can go for a walk or run in your neighborhood, in a special location, on a treadmill, or you can still go on the IRIS Route by viewing the maps below or by logging into the RunGo App.

  • All Prizes will be distributed by random drawing of adult participants. You will be notified if your name is drawn and will be asked to make an appointment for prize picked up at the IRIS Office the week after the race.

Attention Trot Teams:

  • All donations to your Team must be in by 6:30 PM on November 25th to qualify for the Top Team Prize.
