Taos Turkey Trot 5k Road Race, Fun Run/Walk and KidsK

Saturday, November 20, 2014

Thanks to all our participants for a wonderful 4th annual Taos Turkey Trot! Together we raised $2300 for Get Fit Taos Kids programming, and we’re so happy to have been able to make our best donation yet. In 2011, TSA partnered with Nate Draeger and Karina Armijo to put on a timed 5k Road Race and Fun Run/Walk as another way to support local non-profits and encourage youth and community participation in healthy sports and recreation. The event was well received by the community as a fun way to kick-off the Holidays in Taos. This annual event takes place on the Saturday before Thanksgiving.

The first year all proceeds benefitted the Taos High School Athletics Department. The second and third year all proceeds helped support the services of Get Fit Taos Kids. This year we again partnered with Get Fit Taos Kids to present this event and benefit their programs helping youth make healthy lifestyle choices. We also partnered with Twirl to provide a FREE! Kids Craft Activity (ages 8-14) during the race from 9-11:30am, and a shorter KidsK 3k for ages 3-12. We are continually working to expand this event to welcome more of our own community into this fun, festive and healthy atmosphere. Check out the slideshow below!
