Scheels Turkey Trot

Family Fun on Thanksgiving Day! 

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, this 20th 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 November 15. The entry fee is $30 per person Nov. 16-18 (active.com only until 11 a.m. on Nov. 18). The cost is $40 for those who register at Scheels pre-packet pick up/registration area (2nd floor) the Monday-Wednesday before Thanksgiving, Nov. 19-21.  The entry fee on race day is $60 (cash only).
