Norpoint Turkey Trot

 

Norpoint Turkey Trot undefined

Thursday, November 23, 2017
Thanksgiving Morning
9:00 am

Join us for the 23rd 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.

Packet Pick Up and Parking

Packet Pick Up
Early packet pick-up is Tuesday and Wednesday from 8 am-7:30 pm; packet pick-up will be located in the Center at Norpoint lobby. We will also be selling last year's (2016) Turkey Trot T-shirts for $5 each during the early packet pick-up.

If you registered for the race before Monday, November 20 at noon you will be able to pick up your packets either Tuesday or Wednesday; however if you registered after Monday at noon or later you will not be able to pick up your packet until the day of the race from 7-9 am on Thursday, November 23.

Both the early packet pick-up and the race itself will take place at the Center at Norpoint (4818 Nassau Ave NE Tacoma, WA 98422). On the day of the race all of the festivities, including packet pick-up will be located in the basketball gym.

Parking
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.
