The Norpoint Turkey Trot is stuffed with holiday activities and features a 5k run, 2-mile run/walk and a kids trot. 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 trot course remains on the Center at Norpoint campus. Participants in the kids' trot are invited to join Norpoint staff for crafts and games in the gym while parents run/walk in the 5k or 2-mile events.

Don't forget to bring donations for our canned food and used tennis shoe drive!
