With a new wave of COVID-19 surging across the state of Illinois and the nation, the state of Illinois is committed to listening to public health experts and following science to keep people safe. The Riis Park Striders abide by State of Illinois "Tier 3 Resurgence Mitigations," which include: Outdoor group activities limited to 10 persons or less, participants/guests must wear face coverings at all times.
As such this year's Riis Park Turkey Trot has been cancelled to the general public. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to next year's Riis Park Turkey Trot, which we're sure will prove an exuberant reunion for all runners and turkeys!
