The Turkey Trot isn't just a run, it's a tradition!
Want to enjoy a "Thanksgiving dinner that couldn't be beat", totally guilt-free? Why not run/walk in this year's Mile High United Way Turkey Trot, and go for that second helping of stuffing?
Recognized as one of Forbes Travel Guide's best Thanksgiving events in the country, and known one of Denver's longest-standing traditions, the event on November 28 marks as the 46th annual running of the 5K. The event is held at Denver's picturesque Washington Park, and you can register online here.
Sponsored by local businesses and institutions like Alpine Bank and Great Divide Brewing Company, as well as larger ones like Target and Pepsi, among others, the Mile High United Way Turkey Trot is one of the year's big to-dos. Expect to see plenty of media there, including us! So don't be shy, come say hi!
All proceeds raised go to Mile High United Way and their mission to help those most in need. Just last year, Mile High United Way, through its programs and partners, was able to positively impact the lives of more than 250,000 people in our community, and that's just the dorsal fin of the beast.
How's that for a way to start the holidays on the right foot?
Registration and corrals open at 8 a.m., and events continue throughout the day—including a post-race beer garden. The first 9,500 runners will also receive an ultra-soft, collectible T-shirt. Make sure you get yours by registering sooner rather than later!
