Turkey Trot 5K Fun Run

Join us for the 12th Annual 5K Turkey Trot at Pathfinder Park

The trot takes runners through Pathfinder Park on a system of trails on a relatively flat course which suits runners of all abilities. This is a great way to spend a beautiful November Saturday before Thanksgiving. This is a 5K Fun Run, meaning it is not a timed event. Participants are encouraged to dress up in a costume and dogs are welcome, but you must clean up after them and they must be on a leash. Have your pets in costume as well!

Participants may run or walk the 5K. At the end of the race, awards/prizes will be handed out by drawing from the tickets you received. You can earn tickets by just signing up, dressing in costume and bringing a can of food for local families for the holidays. However, you can only win once. Remember this is not a timed event, it is about getting out and having fun outdoors ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.

All of the proceeds from the run will benefit Recreation District programming.
