Registrations open for the Turkey Trot

It all began back in 2007 when three Ballard residents decided to go for a Thanksgiving Day run with family and friends. Now the annual fundraiser for the Ballard Food Bank has turned into a big event, drawing thousands of runners around Seattle.

Registrations are open for this year’s Turkey Trot on Nov. 23rd, and you have until the 14th to sign up with early bird pricing. Teams are already forming. Kids and dogs are welcome, too.

The Trot is a 5K jog, walk or run — rain, shine or snow — that starts in Sunset Hill at 9 a.m. and ends at Golden Gardens.

This is an important fundraiser for the Ballard Food Bank, and if you don’t want to run, you can always donate and get the T-shirt.
