Course Map 5K

The Celina Turkey Trot 5K course is at Old Celina Park!  Starting and ending in the southern parking lot, participants will loop the park twice, including the west extension. Participants will run/walk in a counterclockwise direction, and the lap point will be clearly marked with cones and signage! 

Course Map 1-Mile

The Celina Turkey Trot 1-mile course will start/end in the southern parking lot at Old Celina Park. Runners will start after the 5K runners have left the chute, and make one loop in a counterclockwise direction. This course does not include the west extension, but does include the trail to the south of the park. The directional arrows will be yellow, a different color from the 5K course arrows.
