Can you believe this race in it’s 36th year? Not surprising, considering last year over 1,200 runners crossed the finish line after trekking through the streets of Pinehurst. From what I hear, most participants will tell you that this is one of the most beautiful Half Marathon courses they have run!
FROM THE RACE ORGANIZERS
Runners get the chance to run through the streets and residential neighborhoods of the village of Pinehurst in the Sandhills region of central North Carolina at the Turkey Trot Half Marathon, 10K, 5K and one-mile race, which marks its 36th annual running in 2016.
In previous years, over 1,200 runners have crossed the finish line in all races combined including more than 340 runners in the half marathon alone. Most participants will tell you that this is the most beautiful Half Marathon course they have run, as challenging to boot.
Runners can expect much of the course to offer ample shade, as the route will make its way largely through residential areas as well as around stretches of Pinehurst Lake, and past several fairways within the neighborhoods that make up the golf resort. The course is certified by USATF-RRTC (USA Track and Field, Road Running Technical Council).
Cannon Park, 90 Woods Rd, Pinehurst, NC
Half Marathon starts at 8:30 AM.
