Why The Strategic Staffing Solutions Turkey Trot?

  • Last year the Strategic Staffing Solutions Turkey Trot was the second largest race in Michigan based on timed finishers.
  • The Strategic Staffing Solutions Turkey Trot attracts over 18,000 registered runners, and utilizes more than 400 volunteers – that’s quite a potential audience! Add the friends and family who support the runners and stay downtown for America’s Thanksgiving Parade® presented by Art Van and the Detroit Lions Game.
  • The newly renovated Cobo Center on the Detroit River provides a spectacular setting.
