The 15th Annual Beverly Hills Turkey Trot 5K Run and Family Walk returns on Saturday, November 25th, offering participants the opportunity to walk or run the beautiful tree-lined streets of the 19th Ward’s historic North Beverly neighborhood. The race kicks off at 9:00 am at 9201 S. Hamilton Avenue. More than 2,000 participants are expected to take part in the Beverly Hills Turkey Trot 5K which has been an annual Thanksgiving weekend tradition for families for over a decade. Runners and walkers of all ages and skill levels are invited to join this fun event and burn off some Thanksgiving calories.
This year’s Turkey Trot includes a 5K run, walk or virtual, an untimed Family Walk (limit 4), or team registration.
All participants who register BEFORE race day will be guaranteed a Beverly Hills Turkey Trot long-sleeved event t-shirt and a goodie bag.
The 5K is chip-timed on a CARA-certified 5K course while the family walk is untimed. Runners will be divided by age and gender, according to CARA-recommended guidelines, with awards given to each age group.
On the morning of the Turkey Trot 5K, the 19th Ward and Original Pancake House – Beverly will host a pancake breakfast immediately following the race in the gym of Christ the King. The cost is $5 per person or $25 per family.
Proceeds will benefit the 19th Ward Youth & Community Foundation and the John McNicholas Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
