Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 26, 2020)
Concord Mall, Elkhart
******** UPDATE: THE 2020 TURKEY STAMPEDE IS NOW A VIRTUAL RACE ********
As of 11-18-20, we are closing registration for the Faith Mission Turkey Stampede Thanksgiving Day Race as the race cannot happen live and in person.
Nobody could be more disappointed than the planning team. We are a close-knit bunch who have been meeting almost weekly on this event for a year- starting with a new, refreshed logo and new courses in Elkhart to avoid clustering. Also, we had to find another venue due to construction in Elkhart on Jackson and lack of parking, and then another when another downtown park would not be finished in time.
Despite our best efforts of using worse case scenarios on COVID 19, a second wave, constant consultation with the County Health Department, we are now at Code Red with COVID. Many, including leadership of the Faith Mission, feel that having a large race would be irresponsible.
However, we do feel an obligation to our committed families who have made this an annual tradition. So the race will be VIRTUAL.
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE?
It means we are not having a physical race at Concord Mall on Thanksgiving. Instead, people can run or walk on their own and upload their photos and times to the website.
Remember, the money for your entry all goes to the Faith Mission homeless shelter. Virtual race registration will continue through Monday, November 23, 2020.
PACKET PICK UP
Packet pickup will be on Wednesday, Nov. 25, from Noon – 7pm at Concord Mall, inside in the hallway.
* Please practice social distancing
* Masks are required to enter the mall.
WHAT IF I ALREADY SIGNED UP FOR VIRTUAL RACE?

People can still sign up for the virtual race until Monday, Nov. 23, at 8:00 am. After that, all registration will close.
