Trotting Turkeys - 5K, 10K, 15K and Half Race Description
The last of our Thanksgiving Weekend events.
Close to a million people will run or walk in an event of 5k or longer this weekend, that is more than 5% off all the runs that people will sign up for all year.
Basically, everyone runs in a race on Thanksgiving... but how many people do more than one event this weekend? Stand out and do something special by joining us and the other turkey's at this event.
Boutique events that remove barriers and help individuals to connect and achieve their goals.
Signing up for one of our run/walk events won’t break the bank. Our low-cost races are cozy and intimate, where you have a chance to get to know your fellow runner and your race director if you like. If you don’t want to chat or make new friends but prefer to put in your earbuds and get lost in the ocean breeze, that is totally fine as well.
We will take care of you. Let us worry about the water and fuel you need to finish your distance so you can do you. You decide what feels right for you that day.
You have the flexibility to sign up for any of at least four different distances at every one of our friendly gatherings. No hassle, no penalty fee involved if you want to change distances on race day. Small events mean not having to get to the event hours before the start or sitting in a line of cars forever to get out of the parking lot.
High Tide Runs are a project of Mercury Events LLC. Mercury Events organizes larger events in throughout the Southwest United States.
