Questions about the race
Q. Where is the race?
A. Green Lake Park (7201 E Green Lake Dr N, Seattle)
Q. Is the race timed?
A. Yes, but please remember that this is a FUN run/walk.
Q. Are strollers/dogs allowed?
A. Yes, but please note that the path narrows on parts of the course. Please line up in the back upon starting the race. No charge for babies in strollers (but they won't get a medal unless you purchase a paid entry).
Q. Is there a water station?
A. Yes, we will have a water station halfway through the course.
Q. Is it ok to walk if I've chosen the run/walk option?
A. Yes, of course!
Q. Can I wear headphones?
A. We would prefer that you do not wear headphones for safety reasons.
Questions about registration
Q. What comes with the kid's entry?
A. The kid's entry includes everything an adult entry would include, but at a lesser charge. Please only register for the kid's entry if the kid is 10 and under. The kid's entry will be listed under the person who purchased the registration (their name) or you can email us to update.
Q. What is a virtual race?
A. A Virtual 5K (or any other virtual race) is a race that you choose to complete where ever you would like. You can walk, run, use a treadmill, or participate in another race. The beauty of a virtual 5K race is that you can run the race at your pace wherever you choose. Do not show up to the race on race day, unfortunately, you will not be able to get your medal/bib. All bibs/medals will be mailed AFTER the race.
Q. Can I transfer to a virtual race since I can no longer make on the day of the race or vice versa?
A. Sorry, no transfers.
Q. Can I get a refund or transfer to another race?
A. Sorry no refunds. If you'd like to transfer to another race, please email us to pay the $10 transfer fee (you can also transfer to another individual).
Q. I couldn't make it to the race, can I pick up my medal or have it mailed to me?
A. Sorry, but the medals are "finisher's" medals. You must be present.
Q. Is this a turkey run or an ugly sweater run?
A. Both. What's better than a turkey in an ugly sweater?
Q. Do I need to dress up?
A. No. But if you happen to have a turkey costume or ugly sweater in your closet, wear it!
Q. What are the top 5 reasons to do a Turkey race before Thanksgiving?
1. Start a new family tradition.
2. You'll get along better with your family - exercise is nature's mood enhancer!

4. You'll earn a cool medal
