    Tempelhofer Feld in Berlin, Germany

    1st Annual Democrats Abroad Tempelhof Turkey Trot

    Democrats Abroad Berlin will be hosting the first ever "Turkey Trot" on Tempelhofer Feld this year on Saturday, November 23rd starting at 10:30am.

    Come out and 'trot' for a good cause, as all the proceeds will go towards registering U.S. voters for the 2020 election!

    You can run one or two laps (6K or 12K) and we will be informally timing the race. The event is open to all ages and abilities, and every registered participant gets a prize!

    Run off those winter blues, start an all-American classic here in Berlin, and most importantly, ensure that Democrats Abroad Berlin is financially ready to turn out the votes of the tens of thousands of US citizens living in Berlin.

    Turkey Trot Registration

    To run, there are two donation levels:

    • Run for 2020 (20€)
      • One entry for the Turkey Trot,
      • and a participation prize
    • Get rid of '45' (45€)

    Please note, your participation is secured only after completing registration on this page and your donation is received.

    If you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, we appreciate your support for this and future events. Please note, as an official part of the Democratic party, the U.S. Federal Election Commission prohibits us from accepting any funds from foreign nationals.
