The Backyard Bonanza will give you a taste of everything that Turkey Mountain has to offer – smooth runnable trails, rocky technical trails, hills, maybe more hills, wooded areas, savanna grasslands, and the Herman & Kate YMCA.
If you have run the Turkey and TATURs race in past you will definitely appreciate this even!.
Note: Due to the planned trail improvements on Turkey Mountain the course may change at the last minute. However, you are guaranteed to enjoy it!
The start/finish line will be at the Herman & Kate Kaiser YMCA. There is plenty of on-site parking. Due to construction along I-44 and Highway 75 some routes will be blocked and may change before race day. We will provide driving instructions prior to the race - but give yourself ample time in case things change.
Volunteer: Nothing says "giving" back to the running community like volunteering and we would love your help!
