Why support the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank?


​​​​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!

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 www.issaquahfoodbank.org for more information. 

COVID Response: This year, for the safety of our community, the 2021 Issaquah Turkey Trot will look like it did in 2020, only better! We are excited to offer 6 different neighborhood Turkey Trot routes that you and your friends & family are encouraged to enjoy any time during the holiday weekend!  It's SO convenient and fun!  WE encourage vaccines and social distancing, and require masks.
