Troy Turkey Trot, virtual this year, will hold a “Fabulous Finish Line” contest
Participants in this week’s virtual 73rd Troy Turkey Trot are invited to showcase their creative side as they cross their finish line by taking part in the event’s inaugural Fabulous Finish Line competition.
Through the contest, which runs Thursday, Nov. 26 through Saturday, Nov. 28, Trotters are asked to submit a creative photo or video of themselves crossing their 5K, 10K, Grade School Mile or Turkey Walk Mile finish line. The deadline to enter is Saturday, Nov. 28 at 11 p.m. To learn more and register, visit the website here.
“With so many in-person races cancelled across the country due to coronavirus, virtual road races are engaging with their participants in creative ways,” said longtime Troy Turkey Trot Event Director George Regan. “One way we’re doing that is through virtual finish line competitions.
“Our Fabulous Finish Line competition asks runners and walkers to fashion their own finish line whether it’s outside their home, on a local bike path or in their housing development,” Regan continued. “They can design creative finish line tape for family and friends to hold or incorporate inflatables or other fun props like balloons, posters and festive Christmas lights. The goal is for participants to celebrate with thousands of other runners when they complete their event.”
Entries will be uploaded to the Trot’s Facebook page. Those receiving the most votes will win prizes, including the event’s commemorative hoodie. Winners will be notified via email.
Entrants are invited to share photos of their entries on social media and tag the event using the hashtags #TTT2020 and #TroyTurkeyTrot.
