On November 22nd, 2018, the Briargate Family YMCA is hosting their 21st annual Turkey Trot 5K and Tiny Trot presented by Kaiser Permanente in Colorado Springs, Colorado.  The Turkey Trot 5K and Kids’ Tiny Trot Fun Run is the eagerly anticipated Holiday event of the season and is a fundraiser for the YMCA. This fundraiser enables them  to provide scholarships to local families in need, which, in turn, allows them access to the YMCA and its many programs.

Anyone can sign up to either run, jog, stroll, or walk. They even have a furry friend wave where you can run or jog with your furry friend. All pets must be leashed, current on shots, and well behaved. Human friends must pick up after furry friends. Furry friends will receive a Turkey Trot 5K bandana and a treat! All furry animals must run in the furry friendly waves. Don’t worry, your time starts when you cross the starting line and end when you cross the finish line.


Make sure to check out the website for more information at https://runsignup.com/Race/CO/ColoradoSprings/TurkeyTrot5KSprings. Even if you are not planning on participating in the this years 5k, come out anyway! This year I’ll be in the running wave.
