The Canton Turkey Trot began in 2003 by the Murray Family. When Justin Murray was diagnosed with epilepsy, his parents, Michael and Terri Murray wanted to do something to help in the fight against epilepsy. Michael and Terri with the help of Michael's cousin, Dennis Murray, who coaches high school cross country, put together a small race consisting of around 50 participants. After a couple of years the Murray Family partnered with Canton Township's Leisure Services and today, the race boasts over 1,500 participants and has provided funds in support of the Foundation's mission.


EXTENDED DATE: Register by November 12th to be guaranteed a race shirt.
