Run Off the Turkey Trot 5k 10k & 13.1 - San Francisco, CA

Gather your family and friends for an annual Thanksgiving tradition like no other: the Thanksgiving Turkey Trot Run. It’s the perfect way to kick off your holiday celebrations by running off the turkey before dinner and all year long. Plus, there’s a delicious Thanksgiving dessert Lara bar waiting for you at the finish line to help you celebrate your accomplishment.

This event is highly sought after, and registration fills up quickly. When the waves reach their capacity, we offer a virtual run option and a waitlist to ensure everyone has a chance to participate. Our approach emphasizes creating an intimate running experience, with each wave limited to just 15-20 participants. Runners and walkers of all paces and ages, including those under 18 with a guardian, are welcome to join.

One of the distinctive aspects of this run is the stress-free atmosphere. There are no timing chips, but our coordinators can assist you in keeping track of your time using bib numbers provided on race day. When you sign up, you’ll receive a premium running shirt, a coveted finisher’s medal (email us after the run), and access to a virtual community of fellow runners.

No need to stress about packet pickup – we’ll ship your swag bag directly to your address. Race bibs will be provided on race day. You can expect your shirt to arrive at your address the week of your race.

To keep you informed, we’ll send a final race update with all the details and course maps the Wednesday before the event. We do accept last-minute registrations for those signing up within two weeks of the race, but please note that shirt delivery may occur after the run. You’re welcome to wear any suitable shirt for the race.

The event features three wave times: Wave A at 8:00 AM, Wave B at 8:30 AM, and Wave C at 9:00 AM. Late runners can still join upon arrival, as our coordinators remain available for support until three hours after the first wave. If you prefer a virtual option, you’ll have access to a coach for encouragement.

Additionally, you can bundle your race registrations for discounts and even earn a custom runner’s trophy by completing three of our runs. Join us in the Thanksgiving Turkey Trot Run – a delightful way to start your holiday and stay committed to your fitness goals.
