Turkey Trot Fun Run & Fitness Walk

The Town of Fountain Hills is committed to the safety of our residents and guests. We are evaluating COVID and will determine a course of action early in September.


Gobble Gobble!


We are celebrating 30 years of trotting! Fountain Hills Community Services Department would like to invite residents and visitors to take part in the 30th Annual Turkey Trot Fun Run. Join us on Thanksgiving morning for a great Fountain Hills tradition and get some exercise before you hit the mashed potatoes and gravy!

We will be changing the timed 5k run to a 5k Fun Run that will not be timed so we won't be providing medals for the top finishers. We added a branded Turkey Trot gaiter along with the traditional long sleeve t-shirt for your swag.
This year, we will start on the Avenue of the Fountains near Verde River Dr and run or walk 2 laps around Fountain Park. The Fun Run will have staggered starts and we are asking that all participants wear a face covering at the start line. Because
