Thursday: Turkey Trot Time!

Ready, Set, Gobble Gobble!!!  It’s not too late to sign up!!  Register your kids for FREE (no t-shirt) for the Wobbler Gobbler!!

Thanksgiving week has arrived! Here is some important information for you to know to help make the Issaquah Turkey Trot run smoothly and keep everyone safe.
 
Online Registration ends Tuesday at 11:00pm. There is still time to invite your friends and get yourself registered! (We still have t-shirts available. If you are able to choose your t-shirt from the drop down menu when you register, that means we still have t-shirts in that size available).  

T-shirt Pick Up /In Person Registration On WEDNESDAY: We want to strongly encourage you to pick up your t-shirts on Wednesday from 12pm-8pm at the Sports Authority in Issaquah. Turkey Trotters get a 15% off your entire purchase coupon – Sports Authority will be donating 10% of all turkey trotters in-store purchases to the food bank. Coupons will also be available at the store. We will only be accepting cash or check for those registering at Sports Authority or Thanksgiving morning. 
 
Thanksgiving Morning

PARKING: Please park in the Pickering Square (PCC, Michaels, Office Depot) parking lot or Costco Warehouse Parking. Enter on 11th Ave or 12th Ave to park. 10th Avenue (street between Costco and the Pickering Barn) will be CLOSED. DO NOT park or use the Holiday Inn’s parking lot. 

START LINE: Located at the City of Issaquah NW Building located behind Lowe’s (1775 12th Ave NW, Issaquah, WA 98027). 

There will be designated areas for the runners, joggers & walkers to wait until their race begins. Look for the designated signs where you should group together. Remember there are different start times for each group so the route isn’t crowded and will help keep everyone safe. 

THANKSGIVING MORNING SCHEDULE
7:30am – T-shirt Pickup & Day of Registration Open
9:00am – Race begins for runners
9:02am – Race begins for joggers
9:05am – Race beings for walkers
Note: The Start Line will remain open until 9:15am if you wish to avoid the crowd and start the route after the official start times.
 
There will be a large timer at the finish line so you can get an idea of what your time was. If you want a more official time, I would suggest you bring your own stopwatch. 

There will be signs and volunteers along the route to help direct you and keep you safe. You can view the route by visiting: http://www.issaquahturkeytrot.org/route.html

DAY OF REGISTRATION: If you plan on registering the day of the event we only accept can accept cash or check only. We are quickly running out of extra t-shirts so if you know of anyone who wants a t-shirt, I would encourage them to register soon! 

GOBBLE WOBBLE: Kids can pick up a Gobble Wobble punch card at Sports Authority or at the Information Booth before the race. We will have volunteers with balloons along the route that will hole punch their card. Tell your kiddos to look for the balloons! At the finish line there will be a prize bag for them {even if your child does not do the entire route we will have a prize bag for them just for coming}. 
 
FOOD DONATIONS: The Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank is always in need of food. If you would like to bring non-perishable donations we will be collecting them Thanksgiving morning and making a delivery to the Food Bank on Friday. Please bring your donations to the Information Booth. You can see specific items the Issaquah Food Bank needs by visiting their website: www.issaquahfoodbank.org
