Since 2002, families in Clark County have met for an early am run before the holiday’s festivities. As popularity & numbers grew, the families realized that their traditional morning Turkey Trot could become a really meaningful way to serve the hungry in their communities, especially on a day like Thanksgiving.  So, the run became organized and now 100% of the race proceeds are directly donated to Clark County Food Bank and the funds gathered from race entries, T-shirt purchases, and Polar Plunge registration provide enough resources for tens of thousands of meals! Get involved in the great cause & family-friendly fun and register for the 2017 Clark County Turkey Trot, 5K & 10K!

I have run this family friendly Turkey Trot the past 3 Thanksgivings in a row. They do a fantastic job from registration online through post race clean up! Ample food, snacks, bathrooms, parking attendants, volunteers, photos, you name it. They make it very clear this is NOT the one to attempt a PR. The Salmon Creek Trail is beautiful this time of year, but shared with the community. The number of runners is capped, but still wayyy toooo many for this to really be a race. It is a time to enjoy and get a run in before Turkey Day starts, while supporting a worthy cause in our local community. The Clark County Food Bank does tremendous work year round and putting on this charity race is a small part of what they do, but they still do it top notch every year!
