Race Preview: 2016 Clark County Turkey Trot and Polar Plunge

If you are looking for a way to give back to the Clark County community, register for the Clark County Turkey Trot 5K or 10K. 100% of the proceeds from this race go to benefit the Clark County Food Bank. Last year approximately 1200 racers provided the resources for 90,000 meals! This Thanksgiving morning race is designed to bring the community together to connect and to help others.

The fun doesn’t stop with the chip-timed Turkey Trot. Afterwards, get in on the traditional Polar Bear Plunge by jumping in to the icy cold water of the Klineline Pond – right near the start/finish line of the 5K and 10K races.

Bananas, bagels, donuts, coffee, and more will be available after the race. There will also be prizes for costumes, so don your favorite Thanksgiving or other creative costume for race day.

There is no day of race registration, so be sure to register for this event in advance.
