Norpoint Turkey Trot


Norpoint Turkey Trot Thursday, November 22, 2018
Thanksgiving Morning

9:00 am

Join us for the 24th 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.


Parking will be available in the Meeker Middle School parking lot or along the street, there will be no parking in the Center at Norpoint parking lot. Children in strollers and dogs on leashes are both welcome.

Kids Dash
The Kids Dash will begin immediately after both the 5k and 2 mile races leave the parking lot; the dash will take the kids around the block of Norpoint and back through the finish line. We will have staff on hand to run with your children and keep them preoccupied in the building while you are running, but any parents or grandparents wishing to run with the kids are more than welcome.
