Join us for the 22nd annual Norpoint Turkey Trot!

The Norpoint Turkey Trot is stuffed with holiday activities and features a 5k run, 2-mile run/walk and a kids dash. The race has been bringing families together on Thanksgiving morning since 1995. For many people it has become as much a part of the holiday as pumpkin pie and football.

Both the 5k and 2 mile routes begin at the Center at Norpoint and wind through the streets of Northeast Tacoma, providing mountain and sound views for participants.

The kids dash remains on the Center at Norpoint campus. Participants in the kids dash are invited to join Norpoint staff for crafts and games in the gym while parents run/walk in the 5k or 2-mile events.


Participants are encouraged to enter the costume contest and dress up like turkeys for the sake of fitness and fun!

Strollers and dogs on leash are welcome.

Early Bib Pickup
Early pickup is Tuesday and Wednesday from 8 am to 7:30 pm at the Center at Norpoint for participants who registered on or before Sunday, Nov. 20.

Participants who register on or after Nov. 21 can pick up their bibs on the morning of the event.
