Why wait until Thanksgiving to begin our TURKEY TROT SHOUT OUTS for our 2021 SPONSORS & EVENT CONTRIBUTORS without whose support the 25th Running of the Annual ADVICE 5K Turkey Trot 🦃 Presented by Fat Cat Running would not be possible! The success of each year’s Turkey Trot is due, in great measure, to financial support provided by many who make up our wonderful community. We ask that you visit and patronize our local merchants and extend heartfelt thanks to the various community members and families who have been so very generous! THEY ARE ALL OUR CHAMPIONS!
Our Community Concert on the Town Green featuring Mama's Black Sheep and the Intangible Cats (check it out!) is being made possible by the generous support of Carolina Designs Realty, Towne Bank, The Waterfront Shops, Duck's Cottage, Lynne & Steve Alterman, Urban Cottage, and a grant from the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau.
Presenting our POST RACE PARTY are our friends at the Outer Banks Popcorn Shoppe 🍿 our trophy pie baker, Chris of Sweater Box Confections 🍪 and the "Raskin Flock" from eventide 🍻 We also owe a round of thanks to the Scarborough Lane Shoppes for making a great locale available and to our long-time friends at Raffaldini Vineyards...cheers🍷
When our Trotters cross the FINISH LINE, they are going to receive a GREATY BAG (not GOODY) with the 2nd of two 25th Anniversary commemorative gifts, customized for this year's celebration by our friends at BOCO GEAR out of Boulder, Colorado! And after we award the Trophy Pies, everyone can look forward to enjoying their snacks & giveaways plus the chance to win GREAT PRIZES! We have the following businesses and individuals to thank for that: All Ducked Out • The Blue Point • Candy & Corks • Dan Robb • Duck’s Cottage • Duck’s General Store • Ella's Olive • Island Smoothie Cafe • 5CP Consulting • Kathie Levitz • Kellogg Supply/The Cottage Shop • Outer Banks Popcorn Shoppe • Ocean Treasures • Raffaldini Vineyards & Winery • Steve Alterman Photography • Toy-rific • Urban Cottage • Zen&Zip • Dick’s Sporting Goods • Road ID • Fat Cat Running • DripDrop ORS • Piedmont Candy Company (Red Bird Peppermints) • Redex Industries (aka Udderly Smooth!)
We also want SHOUT OUT our DJ, Don Vaquera of SOUNDWAVZ and our event photographer, Grant Pilarz Photography. Additional thanks go out to our locally owned & operated production businesses: Flying Fish Ink Screenprinters, Outer Banks Embroidery, and Access Design & Print in addition to DeFeet from North Carolina for the customized socks everyone will receive in their packets! We also appreciate the assistance of Han-dee Hugos in Duck, Carolina Ice, Maola Milk, Sysco, and the generous donation from Boxed Water.
And last -- but in no way least -- here's some BIG TURKEY TROT SHOUT OUTS to the Town of Duck, Duck Police, Dare County EMS, Duck Fire Department, and OUR TURKEY CREW VOLUNTEERS! We couldn't have done this for 25 YEARS without them!
