Scheels Turkey Trot

Family Fun on Thanksgiving Day! 

2017 10K Results!  Overall Results; Results by Age 

Before you settle in for a day of Thanksgiving feasting and football, head to the Scheels Turkey Trot for a large serving of healthy family fun. Scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. at Scheels and Sparks Marina every Thanksgiving, this annual running and walking event is a great way to burn calories and give back to the community.  

Run/Walk Options

Participants can choose to do either the timed 10K run or the two-mile untimed walk or run around the Sparks Marina. The 10K, which equates to a little more than six miles, uses city streets, as well as the local bike path. Both the 10K and the two-mile events will start and finish in the parking lot of Scheels.

Cost to Participate 

The cost to participate in Scheels Turkey Trot is $25 per person if registered by the early cutoff in November. The cost thereafter is $30 per person leading up to Thanksgiving week. The cost changes to $40 for registrations at Scheels pre-packet pick up/registration area (2nd floor) Monday-Wednesday before Thanksgiving. The race day cost (cash only) is $60.
