Norpoint Turkey Trot Kids’ Dash
The race has been bringing families together on Thanksgiving morning since 1995 and for many it has become as much a part of the holiday tradition as pumpkin pie and football. Early registration saves money on the entry fee, which is $30 through Nov. 24, but rises after that. Participants are encouraged to enter the costume contest and dress up like turkeys for the sake of fitness and fun!
Both the 5k and 2-mile routes begin at 9 a.m. at the Center at Norpoint, 4818 Nassau Ave. N.E., and wind through the streets of Northeast Tacoma, providing mountain and Puget Sound views for participants.
The kids’ dash stays 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 or walk in the 5k or 2-mile events.
