Turkey Trot

“Running at altitude is a lot more fun when it’s through beautiful environs like Denver’s scenic, tree-lined Washington Park – and toward a beer garden.” - Runner's World Magazine


Thank you for making the Turkey Trot one of Denver's greatest Thanksgiving traditions!

Last year, we broke our record with more than 10,300 participants making the 44th Annual Mile High United Way Turkey Trot part of their Thanksgiving tradition. Thank you to the hundreds of volunteers that make this event possible every year. Because of you, we raised nearly $450,000 towards our work that will change the odds for families and individuals in our community, and move them out of poverty.

44th Annual Turkey Trot

“With mild weather forecasted, a start village featuring coffee and a post-race party stocked with live music, booths and a beer garden, this year’s classic Denver Turkey Trot is sure to be the best yet.”

Colorado Runner Magazine
