What should I expect?
This event is a casual run, jog, or walk (most people walk). The route is 5K (around 3 miles), but there are lots of shortcuts if you don't want to do an entire 5K. The Turkey Trot is a way to come together as a community and neighborhoods during the holidays to help those in need and have fun. Don't forget your Thanksgiving costumes and accessories because selfies are recommended!
Where should I park?
There will be plenty of parking nearby: Street parking around the city, the Dollar Tree center, Boehms Pool, Clark Elementary School, Gibson Ek High School, Issaquah Middle School, and Issaquah High School. Parking and shuttles will also be available at the Issaquah Transit Center (1050 17th Ave NW).
Where is the start/finish line?
The start/finish line is on SE Bush Street at 1st Ave SE, between the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank and the Issaquah Community Center.
