Norpoint Turkey TrotThursday, November 26, 2015
Thanksgiving Morning
9:00 am

Join us for the 21st annual Norpoint Turkey Trot.

Turkey Trot walkers with dogThe 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 packet pick-up for the run is encouraged and will occur from 8am to 7:30pm Tuesday and Wednesday before the race at the Center at Norpoint*.

*Please note: runners must be signed up by midnight, Sunday the 22nd to be able to pick up bibs Tuesday or Wednesday.  Any registrants Monday the 23rd or Tuesday the 24th will need to pick theirs up on Thursday morning at check-in.
