EVENT DESCRIPTION

The NCMC Foundation, along with the CardioVascular Institute of North Colorado at NCMC will host the 20th Annual Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day, November 23, 2017. Last year’s event was another success with more than 2,700 registrants participating in one of the largest Turkey Trot events on Thanksgiving Day in Northern Colorado!

With the support of many generous sponsors and participants, over $55,000 in net proceeds was raised to assist Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation patients. Without our sponsor’s and participant’s support, these patients would not have been able to participate in the rehabilitation program. Proceeds for this year’s Turkey Trot will again benefit the Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation program at North Colorado Medical Center.

The race is open to participants of all ages and abilities and includes a 5K race on a scenic, USATF-certified 5K course beginning at 9:00 am and a 2K Gobbler Trek fun run beginning at 9:15 am. Prize money will be awarded to the top male and female finishers in the 5K; $250 for first place, $150 for second place and $50 for third, with Masters (ages 40 and up) $100 for first place and $50 for second place. Age group winners in the 5K will receive fresh pies donated by local bakeries and given out to the top three winners in the following age categories: 12 and under, 13-15, 16-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70 and over. Medals will be awarded to the top three 2K participants in each of the following age categories: 6 and under, 7-9, 10-13, 14-19, 20-40, 41-60, 61-70 and 71 and up.
