North Shore Turkey Trot 5K

Disclaimer: I received a free entry to the North Shore Turkey Trot as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

I’ve run almost all of the RAM races simply because they always do a great job from registration to post race.  The North Shore Turkey Trot was no exception.  I’ve run this particular race for the last few years mostly because it’s in my hometown.  There were some cold years and today was actually pretty decent out.

Registration is always simple on RAM’s website and I really like the way I can log in and most of my data is filled in automatically.  There was a 5K or a 10K option but considering I am injured and having surgery soon, I opted with the 5K.  This was another sell out year since the Turkey Trots are extremely popular.  I’m glad I got in early!

As for the packet pickup, there was only one date and location for the bibs and the line was a little long at the Fleet Feet Deerfield store.  It moved along and there were donuts and juice waiting for the customers.  The staff there is always friendly and they were moving quickly!  Over the years, the Turkey Trot has always given out great clothing for the goodie bags including sweatshirts and pajama pants.  This year’s long sleeve shirt is outstanding!

The race course itself runs through the scenic north shore town of Highland Park and crowds are pretty supportive.  I love the Star Spangled Banner before races and this year, there was a young gentleman who nailed it!  The post race area had the usual water bottles, Clif Bars, and the BEST APPLE PIES!  Please keep these coming for years to come!
