16th Annual Petaluma Turkey Trot

Ellis Creek Trails

3900 Lakeville Dr.

Thursday November 23, 2023

The 16th Annual Petaluma Turkey Trot is healthy, family-friendly, and fun! No fee, quick registration and photo shares.

The trot started 17 years ago when founder Mary Dooley was looking for a community run to participate in on Thanksgiving morning. Since no such run was to be found, there was only one choice: start one and design a route that would excite and delight. She invited the whole community to trot around in nature and feel darn good about a calorie burn before the big feast. The Turkey Trot is not just a walk in the park (though walkers are welcome).

Our partners are AQUS Community, and the City of Petaluma.
