A Family & Community Tradition

Duck's favorite footrace is a fun family and community tradition open to participants of all ages and abilities. Our event is a non-sanctioned 5K loop, beginning on Scarborough Lane and finishing up with a finish line full of post race festivities.

Celebrating its 20th Anniversary in 2015!

The Annual ADVICE 5K Turkey Trot Fund: A Permanent Charitable Endowment

Net proceeds from the ADVICE 5K Turkey Trot are donated to the Annual ADVICE 5K Turkey Trot Fund. Established in 2013, this permanent charitable endowment is managed by the Outer Banks Community Foundation. Its purpose is to award nonprofit grants for projects that improve and support the health and wellness of all the people of the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

As is traditional, our first male, female and youth (12 and under) runners in addition to our first walker each get one of our infamous pumpkin pies and our charitable endowment that supports nonprofit grants to improve health and wellness on the Outer Banks benefits from race proceeds.

The Annual ADVICE 5K Turkey Trot is grateful to Road ID for their continued sponsorship and commitment to keeping runners and walkers safe!

Please note, registrations are NOT transferable or refundable nor do we accommodate last-minute registrations due to cancellations or "no-shows" come race day. Additional people on the course compromise everyone’s safety, the integrity of the route, and the good will we have worked hard to establish with the Town of Duck.
