Kick Start Your Holiday Season

If you think the only race that happens on Thanksgiving Day is seeing who gets a second helping of pumpkin pie first, guess again. Before lifting a fork, watching football, and taking a post-turkey snooze, thousands of Americans start their holiday by giving thanks with a Turkey Trot, including here in Mammoth.

Event Details

Commit to health and fitness on Turkey Day with a two-mile race in downtown Mammoth Lakes on the multi-use path. The Mammoth Track Club will cheer on runners and celebrate over a cup of hot chocolate at the finish line.

  • Bib Pick-Up: On race day at Mammoth Creek Park

  • Start/Finish: Mammoth Creek Park, 2 mile out/back course

  • What to Wear: Be prepared for sun or snow. A beanie, sunglasses, gloves, and layers of clothing are recommended.
