17th Annual Turkey Trot  

The NCMC Foundation along with the CardioVascular Institute of North Colorado will host the 17th Annual Turkey Trot  2K/5K Run/Walk, presented by Noble Energy, on Thanksgiving Day, November 27, 2014.   Last year’s Turkey Trot had another record turnout with more than 3,700 walkers and runners.  It’s the largest Turkey Trot in Northern Colorado and is a Thanksgiving tradition for many families.  With the support of many generous sponsors and participants, we raised $50,000, which provided financial assistance to over 40 patients. Without our sponsor’s and participant’s support, these patients would not have been able to participate in the rehabilitation program. Proceeds for this year’s Turkey Trot will benefit the Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation program at North Colorado Medical Center.  

The scenic 5K race is a Northern Colorado Running Club-certified 5K course and begins at 9:00 a.m. with the Gobbler Trek, a 2K fun run beginning at 9:15 a.m.  Prize money will be awarded to the top male and female finishers in the 5K; $250 for first place, $150 for second place and $50 for third with Masters (ages 40 and up) $100 for first place and $50 for second place.  Age group winners in the 5K will receive fresh pies donated by local bakeries and given out to the second through fifth place winners in the following age classifications: 12 and under, 13-15, 16-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70 and over.   Medals will be awarded to the top three 2K participants in each of the following age groups: 6 & under, 7-9, 10-13, 14-19, 20-40, 41-60, 61-70 and 71 & up.  

Individual/Family registration for the Turkey Trot will begin at the end of October. Registration is $25 for adults, $15 for youth age 17 or younger.  On race day, registration goes up to $30 for adults and $20 for youth. 

Participants are also encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Weld Food Bank. For online registration, please visit www.BannerHealth.com keyword NCMC TurkeyTrot or www.active.com (NCMC Turkey Trot), or stop by Bells Running, 3620 West 10th Street in Greeley.
