On behalf of Christ Church of Arlington and Our Entire Community, the "Chief Turkey" says Thank You!

The Arlington Turkey Trot is a wonderful community event that we have grown to love.

Thanks to the Trot’s donators, promoters, registrants, sponsors and volunteers, together with our neighbors, who are sometimes inconvenienced on Thanksgiving morning.

And, special thanks to the vision of Christ Church of Arlington’s leaders who declared and demonstrated their love and faith in God in 2006 to help our neighbors in Arlington in need of a hand up.

With appreciation and respect,
Mark Riley
Chief Turkey


2020 Beneficiaries

A special thank you to all the Turkey Trot supporters over the years. Your participation assists the following beneficiaries:

Our NEW 2020 Arlington Turkey Trot t-shirt!

The 2020 ATT t-shirt features  “Major Tom” riding a drone as we emerge from honoring the past and look forward to the future.  Had we been able to run in person, Major Tom would have rode the drone as the festivities were filmed from above. But alas, that was not to be this year.

All runners registered for the trot by November 1st will be guaranteed as part of their race registration, an Arlington Turkey Trot cotton t-shirt. During registration, you may choose (for an additional $20) to upgrade from the cotton tee, to a Long Sleeve Performance t-shirt. Wear your shirt at the race and throughout the year! It’s bright, beautiful and fun!
