Come one, come all! Turkeys, Huskies, runners, joggers & walkers of all ages, because Bailey's Annual Turkey Trot is going to be one you and the family won't want to miss!
Come join us for this annual family tradition held on Thanksgiving day (Thursday, November 24th) right here in beautiful Bailey, Colorado. Although this event is still a race, we encourage all walkers, joggers, and runners of all ages and skill levels to join us for a morning filled with family & fun at one of Colorado's premiere trail running locations, the Bailey Outdoor Education & Recreation Area (BOERA) located at 599 Rosalie Rd. We will offer four different "distances" for participants; a "1k kids loop" for athletes 11 years of age and under, a 5k division, a 10k division and a "virtual division" for athletes who want to participate from a different location. Our 1k kids loop division will begin at 9AM, with the 5k and 10k divisions beginning directly after. All participants will receive a super cool finishers' medal, a long sleeve technical racers shirt, a goodie-bag with tons of cool swag from our race sponsors. For all participants who attend in person, we will have a race-day expo right after the race with a race day raffle and many of our sponsors setting up booths with more goodies, items to purchase, info about their businesses, etc. Be sure to stop by and see what they are all about and support our local business community!
The proceeds from this year's event are being split 50/50 between BOERA and Platte Canyon School District's middle school and high school cross country programs. BOERA uses their funds to maintain their gorgeous grounds, grant annual scholarships to local students, fulfill grants to local programs and much more. The cross country programs will be raising funds in order to buy a professional "timing matt" for their cross country events (see more details below, as well as donate directly to their purchase).
We would not be able to hold this event without the help of all of our amazing local sponsors! The sponsors for this years event are as follows: (As of 9/21)
