Come experience what has become one of Steamboat Spring’s greatest Thanksgiving traditions. This race/fun run/walk hosted over 600 participants in 2018 and proved to be such a special day for friends, families and visitors to Steamboat Springs. The Turkey Trot is a 5k benefitting the Steamboat Springs High School Track & Field and Cross Country programs. It starts and ends at Steamboat Springs High School, in the newly renovated Gardner Field Stadium. The 5K travels to beautiful Strawberry Park and back. Dress in your cold weather running gear or even a Thanksgiving Day costume.
