My husband and I got married in April and definitely want a turkey trot to be an ongoing tradition for us. This race is really close to his parents house so we all signed up and had some neighbors join us too. This race was small, flat, and very family friendly. I feel like I would’ve had a fast race if I hadn’t had food poisoning the day before…

I would love if they would have an athletic shirt rather than a cotton one and a longer distance option would be great too. Overall we enjoyed this race and plan to be back next year

We had a lot of fun at this race. The weather was wonderful, the medal was great, and finishing in the baseball stadium was fun!
Packet pick up was pretty sloppy but other than that this was a great experience. There’s a good chance we’ll do this race again

This race came highly recommended but definitely fell short of our expectations. Our biggest gripe is that there were only four bathrooms at the start line with a line a mile long and there were zero during the course. With it only being a 10K I can understand not having restrooms during the race but there should’ve been more at the beginning…. 3/5

My friend and I had such a great time in 2017 we came back again! The course, expo, and swag were all still great but the host hotel was a complete disaster. I was already in town for work so we were able to get a room in a relatively reasonable amount of time (we had a room about three hours after check in) but there were people in the lobby waiting on their rooms past 11pm when they’d arrived around 4. The hotel did not keep runners grouped together but instead mixed us in with bachelor and bachelorette parties. Our room was connected to/shared a door with a bachelor party where they had a dozen guys staying in a room meant for two people…. They were screaming, yelling, then vomiting all night. I’m all for people having a good time but that ruined ours. Not planning on coming back for a third race

The St Jude Memphis marathon weekend is top notch and leaves you feeling so grateful

The course is challenging but you have great crowd support

An added bonus with this race is it is on Saturday so you can go out and explore afterwards.

I love a Saturday race!

I did not prepare for this race but I had a blast! The course was beautiful (and flat), the event staff was great, and we had such a wonderful trip to Savannah!! We were so excited we signed up to come back

Course bonus: the trees offered wonderful shade the majority of the time

I loved this race so much and can’t wait to do another revel race in the future. The altitude was a challenge for me (I was living in Florida at the time) but the beautiful scenery was a perfect distraction. I took several pictures – one of my favorite memories was stopping for a few seconds to let a family of deer cross the road.

Writing this about four years after the fact…. what I remember is the after party and the medal were both great (the medal was a really big peacock suncatcher) but the course was over crowded and a lot of people fell on the cobblestones. I remember people bleeding and crying….

I ran this about four years ago and only have positive memories. I remember great crowd support, a beautiful course, awesome swag (I still wear the shirts), a top notch expo, plus cool medals. I hope to run this again one day
