Hopelink’s 16th annual Turkey Trot 5K family Fun Run and Walk is set for Sunday, Nov. 20 in Kirkland. The three-mile course runs from Marina Park to Carillon Point and back, and is open to both runners and walkers. Registration begins at 9 a.m., and the race starts at 10 a.m.

Last year, nearly 1,400 Turkey Trot participants and supporters helped raise nearly $215,000 in donations.

Presented for the 10th consecutive year by Fred Meyer and supported by a host of other local businesses, Hopelink’s annual Turkey Trot helps provide emergency services and holiday assistance to low-income families in east and north King County during the winter months. Families in poverty struggle year-round, but in winter they face added financial pressure from such things as higher home heating costs and providing their children with warm clothing and visits to the doctor if they get sick.

The registration fee includes a Hopelink Turkey Trot tech shirt. Prior to Nov. 18, the fee is $40 for individuals and $35 each for teams of four or more. Kids in strollers and pets are free.
