Description

WHAT IS THE TOFURKY TROT?
The Tofurky Trot is a family-friendly 5k (3.1 mile) fun run, trot, or walk open to all levels of physical fitness, followed by a vegan food fest featuring local and national vendors, speakers, and music (no separate ticket purchase necessary for food fest).

Prizes and medals will be awarded to the first adult and child finishers, to the person wearing the best costume, and to the cutest dog!

All runners will receive a Tofurky Trot tote-bag filled with coupons and swag. T-shirts will be available to purchase.

Please note that runners will receive bibs and a race clock will be present at the finish line; the race will not be chip timed.

WHO IS ORGANIZING THE TOFURKY TROT?

The LA Tofurky Trot is organized by the Factory Farming Awareness Coalition (FFAC), an educational non-profit empowering people to help save animals, the environment, and our own health through our daily food choices. All proceeds from the Tofurky Trot benefit FFAC's humane education program.

Tofurky is the principal sponsor of the Tofurky Trot.
