Ballard Turkey Trot is on for Thursday

Organizers with the Turkey Trot tell us that the 5k walk/run/jog is still on for Thursday, despite the weather.

So far more than 1500 people have signed up for the 5k, organizer Mary Beth Lambert tells us. Participants who have pre-registered can stop by the Ballard Food Bank on Wednesday between 4-8pm to pick up shirts. All proceeds benefit the Ballard Food Bank.

The National Weather Service says the Thanksgiving Day weather will be “cloudy with a chance of rain… possibly beginning as snow in the morning. Highs in the upper 30s to mid-40s. South wind 10 to 15 MPH.”

The Turkey Trot starts at 32nd Ave NW and NW 85th St at 9 a.m. and ends at Golden Gardens Park. You can see the route here.
