The race kicks off at 9:00 am at 9201 S. Hamilton Avenue. More than 2,000 participants are expected to take part in the Beverly Hills Turkey Trot 5K which has been an annual Thanksgiving weekend tradition for families for over a decade. Runners and walkers of all ages and skill levels are invited to join this fun event and burn off some Thanksgiving calories.

On the morning of the Turkey Trot 5K, the 19th Ward and Original Pancake House – Beverly will host a pancake breakfast immediately following the race in the gym of Christ the King. The cost is $5 per person or $25 per family.
