Turkey Trot

Sun November 22, 2020 to Sun November 29, 2020 – Virtual

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic this year’s Turkey Trot will be offered only in a virtual format.

The GBRC Turkey Trot is a 5K fun run that all net proceeds will benefit the Bellingham Food Bank.  This year’s event will be virtual so you can run anywhere! Run around your neighborhood, on a treadmill, up your favorite mountain, or around your grandma’s dining room table. The choice is yours.  Please be aware of your surroundings, take proper precautions to be seen when running on roads, and continue to social distance.


Due to the nature of this year’s virtual event there will be no charge for entry for both GBRC members and non-members, but it is encouraged to donate to the Bellingham Food Bank instead.

Registration is now open and will remain open until November 29th.
