Registration for the 22nd Annual ADVICE 5K Turkey Trot has closed. Our registration is limited to assure safety and closes once the race reaches capacity (650); generally in under 60 minutes.


NEW THIS YEAR, all registered participants will stage at the rear of the Scarborough Lane Shoppes ahead of the 9 am Race Start.  The ADVICE 5K Turkey Trot will use its traditional, non-sanctioned 5K course that passes through residential neighborhoods and the Village, ending with its Post Race at the Scarborough Lane Shoppes.

It's ALL About The Fun!

The ANNUAL ADVICE 5K TURKEY TROT is a 501(c)3 organization through the Road Runners Club of America group exemption status with the IRS. The ANNUAL ADVICE 5K TURKEY TROT promotes and encourages running and walking as it improves individual health and fitness and overall community health. Towards this, The ANNUAL ADVICE 5K TURKEY TROT is the cornerstone fundraising event for the Annual ADVICE 5K Turkey Trot Fund, a permanent charitable endowment managed by the Outer Banks Community Foundation. The event’s net proceeds, which include sponsoring contributions, are donated to the fund in December. The Outer Banks Community Foundation manages charitable funds for individuals and agencies, awards charitable grants to local nonprofits, administers scholarship funds, and provides tailored services to help individual donors and their families pursue their charitable interests. The Annual ADVICE 5K Turkey Trot Fund was established and vested in 2013 for supporting community health projects and initiatives that benefit all Outer Banks people.
