The 7th 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 4 different events including:
1. 5K at Wilmot Park
2. Virtual 5K
3. 3000 Calorie challenge
4. 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 for the Cross Country Team and the Wrestling Team. Look for the t-shirt reveal soon.
As for the events
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. Please wear your mask as a courtesy to others until you reach the start/finish line. 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.
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! While this category is not eligible for the age group awards, your results will be merged in with the rest of the running field.
The 3000 Calorie Challenge is the same as last year. Runner/walkers will have the entire month to work off those calories that will be consumed during your Thanksgiving dinner without feeling guilty. Each day that you complete a distance, you upload it to our registration site and you can see your progress. The average runner will burn 100 calories per mile and so the goal for this event will be 30 miles. Do you accept the Challenge?!
This year’s Turkey Trot is going to be a great event. We are excited to be back at Wilmot Park and being together in beautiful downtown Woodinville with friends and family on Thanksgiving morning.
It's been a challenging couple of years and we hope to do our part to get us back to pre-pandemic normal. So, let’s have fun, stay safe and be thankful for the many blessings of what went well this year.

Yes, but we ask you to start in the rear of the event to prevent any injuries.
No, it's too dangerous with the number of people, size of path and our insurance does not cover it.
