Turkey Trot 5K Fun Run

The 9th Annual 5K Turkey Trot will be held at Pathfinder Park between Cañon City and Florence on CO Hwy 115 Saturday, November 23rd.  It will take runners through Pathfinder Park on the system of trails.  This is a relatively flat course and suits runners of all abilities.  This is a great way to spend a beautiful November Saturday before Thanksgiving.  This year it is a Fun Run, meaning it is not a timed event.  Participants are encouraged to dress up in a costume and dogs are welcome, but you must clean up after them.  Have your pets in costume as well.  Participants may run or walk the 5K and there will be multiple stations along the course.  At these stations you will be required to perform an exercise/calisthenic.  Once you complete this exercise you will earn a ticket.  At the end of the race the awards will be drawn from the tickets you received along the course.  Remember this is not for a time; it is about getting out and having fun outdoors ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.  All of the proceeds from the run will benefit Recreation District programming.  Following the Turkey Trot there will be concessions available and the awards/prizes presentation will follow.  So bring the entire family and have a good time.  We will still offer a turkey to the fastest male and female runners; and the best costumes for both people and pets will earn awards as well. 

The entry fee is $25 by November 15th, or $35 from November 16th until race day.  All participants will receive a T-shirt and snacks will be provided before and after the race.  Click on the links below to register online.
