Proceeds from the Guthrie Sayre Turkey Trot will benefit Guthrie’s Cancer Care Fund. This fund was designed to help with the many financial burdens that come with fighting a cancer diagnosis, whether it is payment to heat a home for a patient undergoing chemotherapy or providing gas cards to patients traveling back and forth to treatment.

There will be no last-minute registration available this year. Registration is online only. Visit for more information and to register for the race.
