The Event

The 13th Annual Run/Walk to Feed the Hungry 5k Turkey Trot. Due to COVID and state restrictions, the event is looking differently this year. You can participate any time from now to Thanksgiving by 11am. We ask that everyone still register, and participate. If you're one of those running for the competition the instructions are:

Here’s how it works. On the Strava app (free versions are available for Mac iOS and Android) there is a route, which is the same as our normal race route. Here’s the link to the course.
All you have to do is open the Strava app on your phone or watch and then click Use Route and then click start when you’re on the “start line” which is Main St. and Valley. Go run it as fast as you can, any day between now and Thursday November 26th at 11 AM. We will still be giving out prizes to the top three women and men individual runners and to the top three teams. Teams should all run the app together when they run or walk the route. All team members upload the activity and name it the same thing so we can see it on the Strava results please. Remember the race route finishes on Main St. and Court in downtown Baker. The map of the route will open when you click on the link above.

any time between now and Thursday, November 26th at 11:00am
Race starts at "Kicks" on Main St.

Cost is $15 per person. All proceeds go to feed the hungry in Baker and surrounding areas. For an additional $5 fee (if registered by 11/10) the first 150 registrants can get an official race t-shirt.
