Love & marriage

It is the mission of the Parkersburg Turkey Trot to promote fitness in our community through distance running and walking.  We strive to achieve this goal through friendly competition and encouragement in a group setting that is enjoyable to people of all abilities.  

It is the choice of the Parkersburg Turkey Trot Committee to keep cost affordable, thereby encouraging participation by all who wish to do so.  All proceeds derived from entry fees will be distributed at the discretion of the River City Runners & Walkers Club Board of Directors, to programs which promote that same goal.
