Have You Registered for the Scheels Turkey Trot? Early Registration Ends November 16!

Sparks, NV – Enjoy a healthy serving of family fun at the Scheels Turkey Trot run/walk event on Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 23) in Sparks. Early registration will be held through November 16, with an entry fee of $25 per person. The rate thereafter is $30 per person Nov. 17-19 (online only with 11 a.m. cutoff on Nov. 19), $40 at Scheels packet pick up/registration area (2nd floor) Nov. 20-22, and $60 on race day.

For nearly two decades, residents and visitors in the Truckee Meadows have greeted the Thanksgiving holiday by taking part in this running and walking event. It’s a great way to burn calories while giving back to the community. This year’s event is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. at Scheels and the Sparks Marina.

Turkey Trot participants can choose from a 10K timed run or a 2 mile run/walk. The courses are user-friendly for both runners and walkers. The start and finish line will be located in Scheels parking lot at the Outlets at Legends at Sparks Marina.

Every runner and walker will receive a long sleeve souvenir shirt, swag bag, and post-race fruit and refreshments. A portion of proceeds from the event’s registration fees benefit Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful and the City of Sparks Youth Scholarship Fund.
