2021 Madison’s Turkey Trot

UCP is proud to be the Charity of Record of the Madison Turkey Trota 5K run/walk/roll that takes place at 8:00 am Thanksgiving Day at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison. 

This year is destined to be one of the best ever! We are coming out from under the wing of COVID and a year of nesting – in isolation, with extended family, or alone, experiencing EVERYTHING virtually, and for some, bearing the unfathomable loss of loved ones. Although our way of life has evolved, and in many ways, innovation has abounded, some things never change… like the reckless abandon of trotting turkeys on the morning of the most gluttonous day of our American heritage, Thanksgiving!

You can register to stroll, trot, or roll in the race (be sure to use code UCP10) or, equally helpful, would be if you shared some of your time as a volunteer assisting other turkeys. 

All toms, hens, jakes and jennies are welcomed – there will be fun for everyone! Heck, you can even bring the poults, if you can wrangle them safely while you run or volunteer.
