Turkey Trot

Saturday, November 23, 2024 – 9:00 AM


The GBRC Turkey Trot is a 5K fun run/walk that all net proceeds will benefit the Bellingham Food Bank. It starts at Squalicum Creek Park (1001 Squalicum Way, Bellingham) at 9:00am. There is a 90 minute time limit for the course.

Strollers and children are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult.

Note: this is an open course. There are sections on the road and two road crossings. Runners will be stopped by monitors for cars.

Well behaved leashed dogs (6ft lead max) are allowed to participate in the event with their owners.  Aggressive dogs will be asked to leave at the RDs discretion. Owners are responsible for proper disposal of all dog waste.

Registration for the 2024 GBRC Turkey Trot will open in September.

No race day registrations.

The top 3 male, female and non-binary finishers and age group winners will win Turkey Trot prizes.  Random prizes will be drawn otherwise.

There will be no official award ceremony, but the winners will be announced and can pick up their awards in the pavilion after they finish.
