The Seattle Turkey Trot was formed in 2007 by 3 local Seattlites who wanted to run on Thanksgiving morning in an attempt to counteract the large quantities of food that would be consumed later in the day. They invited their friends, and 30 people showed up to run that inaugural year. The next year, 200 people showed up, and the extra money raised was donated to the Ballard Food Bank. Since then the Ballard Food Bank has been instrumental in organizing and handling the yearly run, and all proceeds raised go directly to the Food Bank to help them provide food for those in need in the Seattle area.

Now in its 7th year, the Seattle Turkey Trot expects to see an attendance of upwards of 3,000 people. Turkey costumes abound (last year, the Pumpkin Pie Slice walker was a big hit) and the event has truly become a community staple on Thanksgiving morning.

The run starts at 9 a.m. at 32nd Ave NW and NW 85th St, in the Sunset Hill neighborhood of Ballard, and will end at Golden Gardens Park.

Most of us are extremely fortunate. On Thanksgiving Day, we get to sit down to a nice meal, surrounded by friends and family. With the economic hardships over the past five years, many in our community aren’t so blessed.

Local food shelves try to be there, but they need our help. For two of them, Fast Before The Feast is an important way for them to meet the needs of the community. Over the past five years, participants to this race have donated more than 20,000 pounds of non-perishable food items to help stock the shelves for the winter.

fast 3

What makes Fast Before The Feast unique is that we offer thousands of dollars worth door prizes to participants…but they must bring a bag full of food items for the food shelf in order to be entered into the drawing. That gives us an opportunity to increase donations, and give great prizes to our athletes – a win-win!

fast 1

The race offers both a 10K and 5K option, as well as a popular kids’ race. All participants receive a commemorative race shirt (or finisher’s medals for the kids). Families and pets are encouraged to attend.

Location: Quantico, VA

Date: 11/23/13

The Marine Corps Marathon brings more than just the turkey to the annual Turkey Trot 10K, they bring the whole farm! The family event hosted this year on November 23, beginning at 8:30 a.m., offers runners ages 8 and older a premier opportunity to unleash a preemptive strike on Thanksgiving calories by completing the Turkey Trot 10K. Runners ages 9 and under have their own version of a pre-Thanksgiving, calorie busting run by participating in the Turkey Trot Mile.

Both events are attended by the MCM mascots Miles and Molly. The pre-race ceremony includes a presentation of color by the Marine Corps Base Quantico Ceremonial Platoon and the singing of the National Anthem. A robust hospitality greets runners after the 6.2 mile romp through beautiful, tree-lined streets aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico. After picking up some hospitality, runners can head to the petting zoo while waiting for the awards ceremony to begin. Awards feature frozen turkeys for the top three overall male and female winners, top masters male and female winners, and first place age award winners. The second place age award is an always popular Thanksgiving treat, a pumpkin pie. Registration for the Turkey Trot 10K is $35 and the Turkey Trot Mile, $15. Registration is available in both events by visiting www.marinemarathon.com.

When you think of Thanksgiving Day rivalries, it’s usually a discussion about high school football. In Plymouth, Mass, the birthplace of Thanksgiving Day tradition, a new rivalry has begun with the announcement of the Plymouth Turkey Trot, a 4.77 mile run on Thanksgiving morning. The new race represents the fourth road race that takes within Thanksgiving week in the town where the Thanksgiving holiday began.

In addition to the new Plymouth Turkey Trot, three other road races will take place in Plymouth. Those include the Plymouth Turkey Trot’s sister race, the third annual Thanksgiving Day Pilgrim 5k on Thanksgiving morning, the Turkey Chase for Charity and America’s Hometown’s Thanksgiving Race the latter two taking place during the weekend prior to Thanksgiving.

“I don’t know of any city or town in the country that has more Thanksgiving road races than the town of Plymouth, which is probably fitting considering the origins of the holiday,” said Steve Dubin, spokesperson for the Plymouth Turkey Trot and Thanksgiving Day 5k, as well as the Old Sandwich Road Race, which is held in June. “While you certainly don’t wish ill will towards fellow local road races, there is a competition to put on the race that’s going to attract the most local runners as well as folks looking for a getaway over the holidays.”

The Plymouth Turkey Trot starts at Memorial Park on the Waterfront at Plymouth Rock at 7:30am. The 4.77 mile course offers scenic views of the Plymouth’s picturesque oceanfront, and passes several historical sites including Plymouth Rock, Burial Hill and The Mayflower. The cost to register is $20 before November 1. Prizes will be awarded to men’s and women’s winners in several age groups.

“The Turkey Trot gives runners who might have some traveling to do for Thanksgiving an early start so they can get their run in and then head on over to Grandma’s house or wherever they’re going for a guilt-free Thanksgiving-Day dinner,” said Dubin.
