Less Turkey, More Trot – Virtual Race


November 20 -28, 2021

How it works:

Choose your distance (12 km, 24 km, 33.4 km, or all 3). Complete your chosen course between November 20 and November 29. All routes start and end from the McKenny Trailhead at Margaret McKenny Campground. No proof of run is required, however, we do encourage you to send in a photo of your run and photos for a chance to win a prize! You’ll need to record your “total elapsed time” on UltraSignUp when you complete your run.

Awards will be given to:
• Person with the best race photos
• And more!

Entry: $20

All proceeds will go to the Olytrailrunners and Thurston County Food Bank.

Special Raffle:

We’re raffling two baskets of goodies (value $300+ each) with all the money going to the food bank! Purchase $10 tickets when you check out or donate directly to the food bank and send us a photo of the receipt.

Our amazing donors include Well 80, Oly Tap Room, Kristi Lyons, 8 Arms Bakery, South Sound Running, and Tumwater Family Practice Clinic

Course Map:

There are three distances: 7.4 miles (12 km), 14.9 miles (24 km), 22 miles (33.4 km) and all start from the McKenny Trailhead in Capitol Forest. This is a different trailhead with slightly longer distances than last year. ** The course will not well be marked so if you are unfamiliar with the area, be sure to take the map with you. **

We recommend downloading the free Avenza app from Friend’s of Capitol Forest’s website and adding our georeferenced course map. See our course map below. Email if you are unable to access the map.
