Official results for the UWL Turkey Trot are provided by WRS Timing and we utilize MyLaps BibChip timing system.

Trotters time will start when they cross the start line and end when they cross the finish line. Unofficial results are available at the finish line and the overall results will be posted in the Recreational Eagle Center at the conclusion of the race and complete results will also be online.
