Everything You Need to Know About Peloton’s Turkey Trot 2020

By PelotonNovember 17, 2020

In a year where many local Turkey Trot races might be temporarily off the schedule, it’s a tradition that we’re determined to keep going—Peloton style. We love how holiday races bring communities together and are a near-and-dear tradition for so many. That’s why we’re bringing you our very own virtual Turkey Trot for 2020, for everyone to join this year!

How to Get in on the Action

On Thursday, November 26 at 6 AM ET, we’ll be dropping two audio-guided Turkey Trot classes on demand:

Assemble the team that you’ll be running or walking with, near or far, and make sure everyone downloads the Peloton App (the first 30 days are free!*) so you can all listen to your class of choice at the same time and receive individual metrics, including pace and distance. If your friends or family are miles away this year, coordinate a time to press start on your Turkey Trot class together and create your own race. Send out high fives on the Leaderboard to keep the encouragement going.

Our Trot Tips

For your virtual Turkey Trot, we recommend choosing a relatively flat, safe course, with plenty of room on the road for your group to run together. Both instructors will be cueing an out-and-back and will let you know once you’ve hit the halfway point, and it’s time to turn around. Running outside in the autumn and winter is all about having the right cold-weather running gear, so set yourself up for success with warm layers and safety essentials—and bonus points for the most creative team t-shirts! Get the whole group together for a shared warm-up and post-run stretch, to make sure that Turkey Trot glow keeps feeling good all weekend long.
