2020 Turkey Trot: Feast Mode

How does the virtual race work?

From Nov. 15–30, track the total miles run or walked through our custom DA Turkey Trot website. Check the leaderboard and follow your friends, other families, four-legged friends, and faculty and staff as it updates in real time! 

Do I have to run?

No. Run, jog, sprint, walk — the choice is yours. And accumulate miles whenever you’d like — on roads, trails or even treadmills. We will also have tips and advice for those just looking for FUN! You don't have to log your miles. Simply add one mile to join our community and follow the fun.

What about the Fun Run?

This year’s race is FUN for everyone! Follow our trail of FEAST MODE news via DA social media using the hashtag #DAFEASTMODE. Discover a new trail, look for DA turkey sightings, get expert tips from DA runners and more!

How much does it cost?

The cost is $10 per leaderboard participant. Choose one name or register multiple individuals with added registration fees. Faculty and staff are free. Costs cover minimal fees for virtual site logistics and goody bags.

Do I get a goody bag or T-shirt?

For participants who registered by our goody bag deadline, we will host a goody bag pick on Nov. 16 and 17. On either of these dates, you can pick up your bag in the Upper School parking lot alongside Kenan Auditorium from 2–3:30 p.m. (rain or shine). 

Please be ready with your name so that we can place your goody bag into your car via the trunk or the car window. See below for the drive-through path from the Lower School and Upper School car lines.
