Run with SDIA Before You Gobble Til You Wobble this Thanksgiving Day!

All of us at Sheep Dog Impact Assistance (SDIA) are so excited for our 15th annual Turkey Trot for Heroes 5K, Wild Gobbler 5K, Virtual 5K and 1-mile Fun Run/Walk on Thanksgiving morning, Thursday, November 24, 2022, at 9:00am – and we invite YOU to be part of it!

What is the Turkey Trot for Heroes? It is an opportunity to get your run/walk in for the day – before you “gobble til you wobble” – all while supporting SDIA’s Get Off The Couch™ programming and the military, law enforcement, fire & rescue, and EMS heroes we serve.
There is an option for everyone from the adventure runner, regular runner, walker and those who do not run! Register before November 1 to receive Early Bird pricing.
  • Turkey Trot for Heroes 5K is our standard 5K (3.2 mile) run option following a route around the downtown Rogers area. All 5K runners will receive a t-shirt with their $35 Early Bird registration.
  • Wild Gobbler 5K is our more challenging 5K option and includes 5 exercise stops along the route, each one honoring a fallen veteran or first responder. The rep scheme for each exercise directly correlates to the fallen hero being honored. Wild Gobblers will receive a t-shirt and JUNK headband with their $43 Early Bird registration. This year Wild Gobbler’s can also vie for a new award – “13th Place” (for men’s and women’s divisions) – in honor of SDIA’s 13th Anniversary next year!
  • 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk is our slower-paced, family- and stroller-friendly option that follows the same 5K route with a turnaround at the appropriate point for 1 mile. Registration is $15 per person ages 5 and up.
  • Virtual 5K is for runners who live outside the Northwest Arkansas area – and those who don’t run at all! Run (or sleep through your run) on the date and time of your choosing. All Virtual runners (or sleepers) will receive a t-shirt with their $15 registration.


  • Awards will be presented to Best Dressed, Founder’s Favorite, and Super Supporter.
  • Standard 5K has Overall Men’s and Overall Women’s awards, as well as 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in each category and age group.
  • Wild Gobbler 5K has 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 13th places in Men’s and Women’s categories.
