Come experience one of Denver's greatest Thanksgiving traditions, the Mile High United Way Turkey Trot!
In its 43rd year, this fun Thanksgiving tradition draws more than 20,000 people to Washington Park for a four-mile run/walk and community celebration each year.
Proceeds from the Mile High United Way Turkey Trot go towards ensuring:
Children enter school ready to learn
Children are reading at grade level by the end of third grade
Young people graduate from high school ready for a career or college
Families have the opportunity to move towards self-sufficiency
Please join us at the 43rd Annual Turkey Trot.
Together we can change lives and transform communities.
Entry fee includes: super soft collectible t-shirt, bib with timing tag, and great pre/post race expos. First 10,000 runners will receive a t-shirt. Packets available for delivery (for a nominal charge), pre-race day pick-up, and race day pick-up.
Booth vendors will be in the Start and Finish Villages with merchandise to sell and free promo items to give out, including food, drink, and shwag. Oh, and did we mention you'll be running towards a free beer garden hosted by Great Divide Brewing Co.?
