A favorite event among locals – and Thanksgiving holiday visitors alike – is our annual Turkey Trot. What could be better than going for a run and/or walk first thing on Thanksgiving morning … so that you can justify indulging a little bit more over all the wonderful foods served for Thanksgiving dinner. We think this event is a brilliant idea – and so do our racers!

Bring your entire family and join us for this very fun race to support a great cause – each year the proceeds benefit the La Conner Braves Booster Club and a selected athletic program.

The date is always Thanksgiving Day, and the race starts at 8:00 a.m. Thanksgiving-inspired attire is encouraged. You can register ahead of time, or you can register onsite between 6:30 and 7:45 a.m. the morning of the race at the La Conner High School gym. The race begins and ends at the La Conner High School and includes a loop through the streets and parks of La Conner. The Turkey Trot is a 5k race that is chip-timed if you are pre-registered and also includes a free Kids Dash – a shorter course for young children.
