There’s another race happening on Thanksgiving – besides the one to the kitchen to get the last serving of pie.

The Oakland Turkey Trot is back for the second year. Sign up for the 5K race around Lake Merritt on Thanksgiving morning to benefit the Food Bank and other local nonprofits with 100 percent of donations via this link coming straight to us.

The family-friendly event has races for all ages and running levels. Grab a flock of friends or sign up on your own and use our code “ACCFB10” to get 10 percent off the registration fee. 

It’s the perfect way to kick off the holidays, show your gratitude, and help Alameda County children, seniors, and families who are facing food insecurity this holiday season and year-round.

All runners must register to participate in the race – fundraising is a separate bonus! Every $1 you donate helps provide $7 worth of food.

See you on the track! And, Happy Thanksgiving.
