|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.
