About This Activity

The Walnut Turkey Day Dash! 5k fun walk/run has quickly become a community and family tradition on Thanksgiving Day.  This event begins and ends at Walnut Elementary, located at 801 Grove Avenue with a fast course that winds through neighborhoods that is flat, although some streets may be uneven. It is an event designed to start off Thanksgiving Day with activity so participants can enjoy their meals with families and friends knowing they have already burned off calories that morning.

Costumes are encouraged with a trophy awarded to an individual and a group/family trophy with the best costume.

T-shirts are short-sleeved in youth and adult sizes.
