This year the Turkey Trot is proud to hose the SCAA 2018 County Champiionships.
The 2017 Turkey Trot, kindly sponsored by Galloper Wind Farm Ltd, will place on Sunday 10th December, starting at 11am at the Beccles Sports Centre, Ringsfield Road. The Turkey Trot is an undulating 10 mile road race visiting small villages on the edge of the Waveney Valley.
There will be a prize for best fancy dress, as well as festive fayre for all finishers. Please ensure that fancy dress is appropriate for the conditions – absorbent materials can cause hypothermia if the weather is cold or wet.
10.30am Outney Common, Bungay, NR35 1DS. A beautiful rural riverside setting, with plenty of mud! Fancy dress and dogs welcome. This is the antidote to Christmas.
Distances: 9-12: 1.5 mile lap | All others: 2.1 mile 1 lap, 4.2 mile 2 lap

Please ensure your race number is clearly visible to marshals at all times. We will endeavour to check & publish results within 48 hours of the event finish.
