Hey turkey’s, there’s no class tomorrow!
Snoqualmie Turkey Trot 5k Race is tomorrow at 9am! Looks like many of us are running and even several of the kids are going to run the 1k. After you get your timer and race packet plan to look for one another near the start area and we will link up as a group for a pre-race group photo. If you haven’t registered you can still register at the race. Gobble gobble!

There are 746 pre-registered runners and another 50-100 likely to sign up on Saturday morning. This is 340 more people than we had last year. So parking will be very limited. I strongly encourage those who can to walk to the race. If you must drive, you should be aware that there will be no parking on Ridge St. in front of CVES. The road will be closed from 7am to 11am for the race. Parking will be available in the CVES main parking lot but accessible only from the Baker St. entrance. You may also park in the lower portion of the community park parking lot closest to the tennis courts. All city streets are open for parking with the exception of the aforementioned closure.
Registration/Bib Pick Up
Day of race registration and bib pick up begin at 7:00am Saturday morning inside CVES. Please arrive early as we have more nearly 750 pre-registered runners to process and another 50-100 expected to sign up on race morning. When you arrive, please locate the appropriate line based on the first letter of your last name. You will be given your bib number, timing chip (5k only) and t-shirt at that time. Goodie bags will be given out at the finish line.
You must be present at the race to receive your t-shirt. Shirts will not be mailed, dropped off or otherwise made available.
This race is USATF certified and will be chip timed. Each 5k runner will wear an ankle bracelet chip that will accurately detect your total elapsed time on the course. Volunteers will be at the finish line to remove those chips once you are finished. Please make sure you do not accidentally sneak through the chip removal station at the finish line as the replacement cost for the chips is $30 each.
Not only will every mile be clearly marked, but each will be exactly accurate. If you are used to running races with inaccurate mile markers, then you are in for a real treat on Saturday.
All pre- and post-race activities will be inside the warm confines of CVES. The bathrooms adjacent to the gymnasium will be open and available from 7am to noon. There is also a bathroom at about the 2.75 mile mark of the 5k at the community park.
There will be one water station at roughly the halfway point in the Garden Ct. circle. There will be water only; no sports drinks.
A special thanks to IGA for sponsoring the post-race pancake feed beginning at 9:15am which is free to all runners and open to the rest of the community for a charge of $5 per person and $15 per family. There will be pancakes, juice, bacon and coffee for all.
1k Kids Run
The 1k Kids Run starts and finishes on Ridge St. in front of CVES. It will start promptly at 9:00 am. Parents who are running the 5k will have time to join their children for the 1k if they so wish. The 1k is a non-competitive run. All pre-registered 1k runners will receive their free t-shirt when they pick up their bib numbers on race morning. The course circles the school so kids will be in plain sight on a completely closed road for the entire run. Parents are welcome to run with their children and do not need to register to do so. Finisher’s medals will be handed out to each participant at the finish line.
