The Taos Turkey Trot returns November 22, 2014 to the Taos Youth and Family Center to get Taos up and moving as a kick off to the big food holiday! Don’t miss it. This year’s event again benefits Get Fit Taos Kids – a part of the ECHO Kids nonprofit program designed by Taos Clinic for Children and Youth to help educate young people about healthy lifestyle choices like a good diet and exercise patterns to combat the threat of childhood obesity and diabetes among our local young people.

Registration is open now for our 5K Timed Run, 5K Community Fun Run and Walk, and our premier of the KidsK 3K event following the completion of the 5K at 10:45.  We are excited to announce that during the 5K, Twirl Toystore and Play Space is leading a FREE! craft activity at the Youth and Family Center! While older family members compete, kids can play and create. Then comes the KidsK event! Just a $5 donation per child is the registration fee for the 3K (a 1.5 mile out and back trail that stays off the roads and offers plenty of space for parents to cheer on their little Turkey Trotters 12 and under). The craft activity is free to all children thanks to Twirl! To find out more about the race, or to register, visit

If you’d like to volunteer to support the event or be a prize sponsor, we’d love to have you! Please get in touch.
