Our TURKEY CREW volunteers are the wind beneath our feathered wings! Every year a big flock of individuals generously donate their time and talents to making our Annual ADVICE 5K Turkey Trot a safe and fun event. If you're interested in being a part of our Turkey Crew, please contact our Race Director -- the volunteer roster will be finalized by 9/15.


Whether you RUN, WALK, or TROT -- getting registered for the Annual ADVICE 5K Turkey Trot favors the early birds! Online registration for our annual event ALWAYS opens the day after Labor Day ( a Tuesday) at 6 am EDT!  If you snooze...you lose, as the event usually fills to capacity in under an hour! 


To help defray the costs of presenting our event, we seek monetary as well as in-kind CONTRIBUTIONS from our local business community, family groups, and individuals. This support is vital to our success and we're very fortunate to be so enthusiastically received by our Duck community. If you or your business is interested in getting involved, please contact our Race Director.  All financial and in-kind commitments will be secured by August into early September.

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.
