Turkey Day 5k

Event Info

Join us for the 9th Annual Turkey Day 5k, presented by The Steadman Clinic and Steadman Philippon Research Institute. The run will take place in Frisco on Thanksgiving Day. We encourage you to come out and burn a few calories before celebrating with food, family and fun! This event is open to all ages and will take place on the Summit County Recreation Path and Town of Frisco side streets.

Non-Profit Love

We invite all racers to make a non-perishable food donation at the event which will benefit the Family & Intercultural Resource Center of Summit County. A portion of the proceeds benefits Frisco Elementary’ s S.T.E.M. program. In 2021, this event raised $6,530 for the S.T.E.M. program!

Race Details

The race will start and finish at the old Community Center (110 S. 3rd Ave) at 9:30am. Leashed dogs and strollers are welcome. Please keep in mind that pushing a stroller may be challenging at times with snow on the course. This is a fun run. The race will not be timed.
