Welcome to the 16th annual Claremont Sunrise Rotary Turkey Trot. With a start/finish in the quaint Claremont Village, the scenic course winds its way through the tree-lined streets of the Claremont Colleges and into the adjacent historic neighborhoods. A slight downhill grade on the last leg provides a welcome boost into the finish.

This year's hybrid event allows runners to choose between the traditional in-person race on Thanksgiving morning or a virtual race on a course of your choosing. If health and safety concerns make it necessary to cancel the in-person race, all runners will be switched to the virtual option.

Late registration and packet pickup will take place on Wednesday, November 22 from 4PM to 7PM at the Claremont Depot. Located at 200 W First Street, Claremont, CA 91711. Race day packet pickup begins at 6AM.

Everyone in the 1K Kids Fun Run receives a finishers medal and a race shirt. All participants in the 5K Run/Walk get a race shirt. Trophies are awarded to the top male and top female overall finishers. Gold, silver, and bronze medals are awarded to the top 3 male and top 3 female finishers in each age division. Age divisions are <10, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, etc. Race shirt availability is not guaranteed for late registrations, so please register early!
