Celebrate Thanksgiving with Turket Trot 5K/10K

The annual Thanksgiving Turkey Trot 5K/10K is set for Thursday, Nov. 23, on the Olympic Discovery Trail, starting and ending at the Morse Creek trailhead.

The race starts at 9 a.m. and both events close at 10:15 a.m. An awards ceremony takes place between 10:30-10:45 a.m.

Bib pick-up and day-of registration opens at 8 a.m. Thanksgiving morning near the trailhead’s parking lot.

Divisions include both men’s and women’s in these age groups: 17-and-younger, 18-25, 26-39, 40-54 and 55-plus.

Cost for the 5K is $20 per person (plus $2.50 sign-up fee) before 6 p.m. on Nov. 22, $30 up to the day of race and $35 for day-of-race registration. 10K fees are $27.50 for early registration, $30 before 6 p.m. on Nov. 22 and $35 the day of the race. Families (up to six) are $40 (plus sign-up fee) for the 5K and 10K for early registration, $45 for late registration and $55 on race day.

Each year race organizers donate food to the food bank in Port Angeles, and they ask participants to bring canned food or other donations; they will have a table set up for donations.
