Thanks to our 2021 Big Tom Turkey Sponsors!


The Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank serves a 110 square mile radius in East King County, distributing over 1 million pounds of free food and basic needs resources to over 6,000 individuals every year (60% of which are children and seniors). Other special programs include Groceries to Go, Holiday Gift Barn, Lunch for the Break, Power Packs, Summer Lunch, and many more! Visit for more information. 

​​​​The Issaquah Turkey Trot is a fun & casual run, walk, or trot on Thanksgiving weekend. Due to the COVID-19 variant and new requirements for large outdoor events, we are once again offering 6 different courses to choose from that you can explore anytime over the 4-day weekend. We hope to bring back the large, main event in 2022! The purpose of the Issaquah Turkey Trot is to come together as a community during the Thanksgiving holiday and help provide free food and basic needs resources for those in need.

All ages are welcome! We encourage Thanksgiving costumes & accessories!
