Due to COVID-19: We’ve gone virtual!
Join in the fun for the 5th Annual Montlake Community Club 5K Turkey Trot and Kids Run, with 100% of net proceeds benefiting the University District Food Bank. 2020 is a year like no other, and the Virtual Turkey Trot allows you to run, walk, or jog on your own schedule while maintaining the spirit of Montlake’s annual tradition. You can complete your course outdoors or inside on a treadmill, whatever you prefer.
Racing virtually: Every participant will receive a bib, Montlake face buff (tbd), and custom finisher’s medal in the mail. We encourage signups prior to November 23rd to ensure that your swag will arrive in time.
5K Run/Walk: The entry fee is $30 through November 12th. It increases to $35 on November 12th to the 23rd. Registration between the 23rd and The 26th is $40, and cannot guarantee that the race swag will arrive by the 26th. We highly encourage racers to register early to help with shipping!
Kids 1-mile run (ages 2-12): Entry fee is $20 from now until November 23rd. Registration between the 23rd and The 26th is $30, and cannot guarantee that the race swag will arrive on time.
Packet mail – To ensure packet delivery arrives prior to Thanksgiving day, we encourage you to register prior to November 23rd. Those registered on or after the 23rd will still have their race packet delivered, but we cannot ensure that it will arrive prior to Thanksgiving. There is no in person registration this year
