It's Turkey Time!
Time to take your Turkey Trot virtual and to the trails to raise money for the Thurston County Food Bank! Choose your distance and complete your "Less Turkey, More Trot" on one of our courses in Capitol Forest sometime between Saturday, November 20 to Sunday, November 28.
Choose your distance (12 km, 24 km, 35 km, or all 3). Complete your chosen course between November 21 and November 29. All routes start and end from the McKenny Trailhead at Margaret McKenny Campground. No proof of run is required, however, we do encourage you to send in a photo of your run and photos for a chance to win a prize! You'll need to record your "total elapsed time" on UltraSign when you complete your run.
Awards will be given to:
• The best race photos (Be creative & show off your Hokas for a #TimetoFly prize)
• Youngest runners
• Hidden Strava segment winner
• Random raffles
• And more!
Thank you to our prize donors Hoka, Sofie's Scoops, Trail Sisters, Friends of Capitol Forest, Club Oly Road Runners, Oiselle, and Joy Ride Bikes.
Registration cost is $20. Money will be donated to the Thurston County Food Bank (90%) and Oly Trail Runners (10%).
We're raffling two baskets of goodies (value $300+ each) with all the money going to the food bank! Purchase $10 tickets when you check out or donate directly to the food bank and send us a photo of the receipt.
