Founded and produced by the Silicon Valley Leadership Group Foundation, the Applied Materials Silicon Valley Turkey Trot is the largest Thanksgiving Day race in America and, in 2022, was the largest race in California. It allows participants to start Thanksgiving Day off on the right foot by celebrating generosity and wellness with a diverse group of runners and walkers committed to investing in their community. All event proceed are donated to four valuable beneficiaries: Second Harvest of Silicon Valley, The Health Trust, Healthier Kids Foundation, and Second Harvest Food Bank Santa Cruz County.
This family-focused event welcomes participants of all fitness levels -- elite runners, joggers, and walkers -- to enjoy the flat and fast course that flows through downtown San Jose's local neighborhoods and businesses.
So kick-off the holiday season by joining your Silicon Valley neighbors at the biggest Thanksgiving Day block party in the country. Sign up to make the Applied Materials Silicon Valley Turkey Trot your newest tradition!
