The Baptist Health South Florida Turkey Day Run Miami presented by Publix lines up inside Tropical Park next to the baseball fields. All participants will begin by following the path through the park, past the tennis courts and then head out to Bird Rd.
The route proceeds along Bird Rd. and then back in through the main entrance. Participants continue following the main park road and will pass by Miami's famous Santa's Enchanted Forest and wrap back around the park stables. All completing the 5K course will make their way towards the stadium and finish the last leg of the race with one lap around the track.
All 10K participants will split off, continuing past the dog park and lake. Once again the 10K will exit the park at Miller Rd., head up SW 82nd Ave. and turn around just past SW 44th St. Runners then retrace their outgoing path, take their final lap around the track and finish at the stadium as well.
For children ages 2-9, we offer an exciting opportunity to participate in the Turkey Day Kids' Trot. All registered children will receive a child's size tech T-shirt and a finisher medal.
