The Annual Woodinville Turkey Trot is ready to roll this year!     We are planning of having the Kids Parade again this year led by the Woodinville HS Marching band.  At our Kids Dash the kids 6 and under will run a short course of about 200 yards on the trail and finish under the start/finish arch.   The morning should be a great way to get your Thanksgiving Day off to a great start before that all important turkey dinner.  

This year we will have 2 different events including:

1.      5K at Wilmot Park 

2.      Virtual 5K

3.       Kid's Dash

Our event continues to be hosted by Woodinville Running Company with a portion of the proceeds and 100% of the sponsorship dollars going to the Woodinville HS Boosters Wrestling Team.    Look for the t-shirt reveal soon.  

As for the events

5K at Wilmot Park

The 5K will begin run after we complete the Kids Dash which should be approximately 9:15am.  The course is a flat, fast out and back course on the Sammamish River trail.  Runners will organized by running pace so please seat yourself accordingly.  Your official time won't begin until you've reached the timing mats under the arch.

Virtual 5k

The Virtual 5k is the same as last year and this allows you to pick your own course and run or walk 3.1 miles and then submit your time.  This is a great option for those who want to social distance, but still have a goal to shoot for and get a great running shirt!  This category is not eligible for the age group 

This year’s Turkey Trot is going to be a great event.  We are excited to be Wilmot Park and being together in beautiful downtown Woodinville with friends and family on Thanksgiving morning.  So, let’s have fun, stay safe and be thankful for the many blessings of what went well this year.
