2021 Montlake Turkey Trot Virtual 5K
Due to COVID: We are virtual!
Join in the fun for the 6th Annual Montlake Community Club 5K Turkey Trot and Kids Run, with 100% of proceeds benefiting the University District Food Bank. 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 runner’s bib and Montlake Beanie. We encourage signups prior to November 19th to ensure that your swag will arrive in time.
5K Run/Walk: The entry fee is $30 through November 11th. It increases to $35 on November 12th to the 19th. Registration between the 19th and The 25th is $40, and cannot guarantee that the race swag will arrive by the 25th. We highly encourage racers to register early to help with deliveries!
Kids 1-mile run (ages 2-12): Entry fee is $20 from now until November 11th. Registration between the 12th and the 19th is $25, and then increases to $30 through the 25th.
Packet mail – To ensure packet delivery arrives prior to Thanksgiving day, we encourage you to register prior to November 19. Those registered on or after the 19th will still have their race packet delivered, but we cannot ensure that it will arrive prior to Thanksgiving.
Racers, walkers and all community members are invited to make an additional donation to the event.
All net proceeds from the race and all additional donations go to the University District Food Bank.

Tot Lot – Montlake
Thank you for your responses to the survey. There were over 150. This spot is very popular! We heard that the Treetop and Explore plans were the most desired. In addition to voting, there were constructive comments. We also met with Arboretum staff and incorporated their ideas.
I have attached the PowerPoint that shows the analysis of the work. One thing that you can’t see is that there another slide, wide enough for two people. Also, note how the playground equipment blends into the trees in the shot from the street.
We heard that you wanted more subdued colors and more natural materials. Unfortunately, we can’t use wood: we have had a lot of trouble with termites and have replaced structures in other parks.
However, we have reduced the amount of plastic and increased metal pieces. This is a little more expensive, so we also changed the artificial grass safety surfacing to engineered wood fiber (wood chips). That also has a more natural feel.
The plan also includes a wider path on the left as you enter. This will help prevent maintenance vehicles from driving on the grass and make for a more comfortable walking and biking space. We will be moving the trash cans so that they aren’t next to the bench and adding a bike rack.
Seattle Parks will build the new play area in the early spring. We are using in-house staff. That allowed us to put more money into construction, but COVID-19 has reduced the number of people working, hence the schedule impact.
A charming comment: “We live across the street and spend a lot of time with our kids there. It is the de facto spot in the neighborhood to meet other kids/families and has been an important community builder, so thanks for giving this time and thought.”
Thanks to everyone and stay safe,
