Turkey Trot - The Bay Church

more than a race...it's a cause


Pick the Time & Place

The Bay Church in Contra Costa County (Concord) CA is honored to present our 6th Annual Turkey Trot 5K/10K run/walk. Instead of running in Todos Santos Plaza in downtown Concord this year, we are going VIRTUAL. During Thanksgiving week, you pick the time and the place (see below for course suggestions). Wherever you are this year, be a part of this Thanksgiving tradition and make a difference.

As with every year in the past, proceeds from this event will benefit The Bay Compassion - a multi-faceted program working to meet practical needs of the underserved in our communities. Our fundraising goals this year to fully resource programs at 2 more schools through Adopt-A-School and add a mobile laundry unit to our Clean Start program. Help us achieve these goals by running, walking and partnering with us this year!

Fun for the Whole Family

We are excited to share our Thanksgiving week with you, giving thanks for the opportunity to put on a fun and festive event to kick off the holiday season.

There will be age group medals and prizes for the fastest overall male/female in the 5k and 10k.
