To all participants in the 2017 Earlysville Turkey Trot:

Thank you for sharing your Thanksgiving morning with us, and supporting the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.

Due to your participation in this year’s Earlysville Turkey Trot, we have raised more this year than any other to feed those in need.

The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank is driven by core beliefs that hunger is unacceptable; that everyone deserves access to enough food; that food sustains life and nourishes health; and that we are called to serve neighbors in need without judgement.

Thank you to all Participants and Volunteers.

What a great morning seeing so many participants and so many kids in our 1/2 mile.  We loved all their enthusiasm to kick start our morning!!  Please thank your kids for being a part of our day.

Big thanks to the Rivanna Community Church and Earlysville Auto Center for hosting our event and contributing in so many ways.  Volunteer coordinators Katy Hood and Robyn Richards were busy leading up to and during the Turkey Trot.  The Hollymead helpers, Elders and all individual volunteers.

This event could not take place without the support of the Albemarle County Police and Earlysville Fire Department.  Thank you for keeping us safe.  How great to see the Fire Department represented in full gear running the Turkey Trot!


Thanks to Blue Ridge Cyclery, 9ROUND Kickbox Fitness, Scott Wagner Chiropractic, Random Row Brewing Company, Formula Complete Fitness, Bodo’s Bagels, Whole Foods Market, Ragged Mountain Running, Aquafloat and Adaptive Marketing.

Thank you, Brain Davis, from 92.7 CVille Country and Pat Gallagher from 106.1 The Corner, for spending part of your Thanksgiving with us.
Let’s not forget Ann Dunn, our 5K lead runner in full costume.  As an elite athlete and local business owner, this demonstrates the character of both Ann and her husband Jason Dunn.  If you have not been to Formula Complete Fitness we suggest you go see them.  Congratulations to the three runners who were able to finish ahead of Ann for our turkey contest.

Also to our 9ROUND winners who received 1 month of free training.
