Nov 19, 2015 08:57AM ● Published by Jennifer Neys

This Thanksgiving, before the big meal, games, and pumpkin pie why not get a little exercise with a few thousand of your neighbors. The Forma Gym Turkey Trot is an event the entire family can enjoy. There are several races to choose from including Kids Fun Runs, 10K and 5K runs, and festival areas with costume contest.

Race day registration will be available. It will be located at Civic Park, the start/finish area for the event. It opens at 6:30 a.m. We recommend arriving one hour prior to the start time of your race.

By running the Turkey Trot you will also be giving back to your local community through our beneficiaries like the Food Bank, WCEF, PEAK, and The Wellness City Challenge.

The event takes place in beautiful Downtown Walnut Creek and goes through a flat terrain of neighborhoods, businesses, and part of the Iron Horse Trail.

Location: Civic Park, 1375 Civic Dr, Downtown Walnut Creek, California

Event Distances: 5K, 10K, Kids’ fun run, ½ mile, ¼ mile, 100yd dash. Both the 5K and 10K go through beautiful downtown Walnut Creek. The 10K also extends out on to the Iron Horse trail. Both the 5K and 10K are paved and flat.
