Turkey Trot

DEREK CLARKSTON/Kodiak Daily Mirror

More than 80 runners and walkers braved the slushy conditions on Thanksgiving morning  in 2020 to compete in Kodiak’s annual 5-kilometer Turkey Trot.

Looking to burn a few calories to make room for an extra slice of pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving day? 

Kodiak’s annual Turkey Trot begins at 10 a.m. Thursday at the Teen Center. 

The event — a fundraiser for the Kodiak High School cross country team — offers a 5-kilometer run or a 2-mile walk. 

Registration starts at 9:15 a.m. at the Teen Center. 

The Turkey Trot is one of the most popular community fun runs of the year. Despite wintry conditions, the run draws over hundred participants. A record 171 runners competed in 2018.
