Before you settle in for a day of Thanksgiving feasting and football, head to the Scheels Turkey Trot for a large serving of healthy family fun. Scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. at Scheels this annual running and walking event is a great way to burn calories and give back to the community. Participants can choose to do either the timed 10K run or the two-mile untimed walk or run around the Sparks Marina, the 10K, which equates to a little more than six miles, uses city streets, as well as the local bike path. Both the 10K and the two-mile events will start and finish in the parking lot of Scheels. Every runner and walker will receive a commemorative long-sleeve souvenir shirt and refreshments. There will be age group awards for the 10k event. 10k Age Brackets: 12-14,15-17,18-29, 30-39,40-49, 50-64, 65+ We encourage the use of jogging strollers along the route of this family-friendly event. However, out of consideration for other participants, dogs will not be allowed on the course (except for registered and licensed service dogs).

Scheels Turkey Trot is committed to protecting our environment. In an effort to manage our event in a more environmentally-conscientious way, we are transitioning to a low waste event this year by reducing the amount of single-use plastic cups given and offering each participant a reusable, collapsible water bottle!  We pledge to incorporate best practices that continue to make our events not only fun, but also more eco-friendly!  

All registrations are final. There are no refunds, deferments, or transfers. Event will take place rain or shine. In the event of extreme weather, we will cancel for the safety of the participants...there are no refunds in this case. Participants that do not show up to race/event will either forfeit their swag bag or request it to be mailed for a $10 shipping fee.
