One of Steamboat Spring’s biggest traditions without a doubt is the Annual Turkey Trot. On Thanksgiving Day from 9:30am until 11:30am come out to Gardner Field and Stadium and burn off some pre turkey meal calories having a great time for a terrific cause!
The Turkey Trot is a 5K run/walk that begins and ends at Steamboat Springs High School with the race course taking racers through the beautiful Strawberry Park. Proceeds from this event go towards benefiting the Steamboat Springs High School Track and Field and the Cross Country Programs. Entry for children ages 0-5 are free, children ages 6-10 are $10, children ages 11-17 are $15 and adults are $20. To register or donate for this event please visit Turkey Trot.
It will be cold outside so be sure to dress in your cold weather running clothes. Costumes are welcome! Food donations are encouraged so please bring non-persihable food donations which will be donated to Lift Up food bank which has distributed over 331,935 pounds of food all over Steamboat throughout the years.
