2015 Turkey Trot 5K

November 26, 2015 @ 8:00 am

Graceworks Turkey Trot 2015 Franklin Tennessee

Now in its 15th year, the Nov. 26 race is designed for families looking to run off a few calories and have fun, as well as serious runners wanting a certified course to train for longer races. Last year, 2,884 people participated, making it the largest stand-alone 5K in Middle Tennessee.

The 5K, which is run on a USATF certified course, will begin at 8 a.m. at the D1 Campus, 7115 S. Springs Dr., just south of CoolSprings Galleria. Participants run or walk throughout the Cool Springs area. The Fun Run for ages 9 and younger starts at 9 a.m.

The community-wide event raises money for GraceWorks, which provides immediate and long-term resources for Williamson County families in need. In 2014, GraceWorks served families with 40,906 needs valued at $3.5 million. More than $1 million was distributed in food alone.

Early Bird registration fees for the 5K through Oct. 31 are $30. The cost increases to $35 from Nov. 1-23. Registration Nov. 25 and 26 is at D1 Sports, and the cost is $40. The price for the Fun Run is $10.

A team/family discount is $5 off each additional participant after the first two are registered. To qualify for the discount, all team members must register online at the same time.

Sponsorships are also available. More information about registration, sponsorships and the event itself are available at

About GraceWorks

GraceWorks Ministries, Inc. was founded in 1995, when area concerned citizens and faith leaders came together and decided Williamson County needed a central place to send people who needed help with food, clothing and financial assistance. By pooling church resources with private and public sectors, GraceWorks was able to provide more help for many needs to better serve our community, rather than duplicating efforts.

Today, GraceWorks has expanded upon these relationships to establish a referral network with other agencies to provide help for immediate needs and long-term resources. GraceWorks focuses on four areas—family supporthunger preventionseasonal needs and educational programs. Through its many programs, GraceWorks fulfilled 40,906 needs valued at $3.5 million in 2014.

“Even in affluent Williamson County, families need help with everyday basic life necessities,” GraceWorks President and CEO Tina Edwards said. “GraceWorks is working to help them beyond a current crisis to becoming self-sufficient.”

We are a United Way of Williamson County agency and a member of Community Foundation of Middle TN, Second Harvest, Hands on Nashville and Center for Non-Profit Management.
