Since 2002, some local families in Clark County had met for an early morning run before gathering around their Thanksgiving table. As popularity and numbers grew, these families realized that their traditional morning run could become a meaningful way to serve the hungry in their communities, especially on a day like Thanksgiving, and Turkey Trot became a Clark County tradition.
Unfortunately, this year, it’s not possible to have 1200 people at Klineline Pond for the annual Turkey Trot, but you can still run and help the Clark County Food Bank.
You can run/walk on your own before Thanksgiving Day or run/walk at one of the marked courses on Thanksgiving morning. Courses will be marked from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM with Start/Finish signs and 5K turnaround signs. Join in virtually or in locations throughout the county.
Registration for Turkey Trot 2020 is $20 and includes a T-shirt, Finisher’s Magnet, and Race Bib, and 100% of the race proceeds support the Clark County Food Bank.
In past years, t-shirt purchases and Polar Plunge registration fees generate enough funding to provide tens of thousands of meals for people in the community.
