We always do fun shirts and medals for our races. This year for the Calabash Turkey Trot, we’re going to have a 5″ 10K medal, 4″ 5K medal and a 3″ Mashed Potato Miler medal. All with a similarly themed turkey so if you run them all, you can proudly display your set together. The shirt design will also include a cute turkey and using the same style soft tri-blend shirt you’ve loved at our other races.
