Where: Benton Drive, Redding


Shasta Regional Medical Center will kick off Thanksgiving Day with a bang with its annual Turkey Trot. This year marks the 25th anniversary of Redding’s biggest and longest standing tradition on Thanksgiving morning.

The race includes a 6-mile run, a 2-mile walk/run and the Diestelhorst Dash, which is a quarter-mile sprint for kids 8 and younger.

Last year, the Turkey Trot had a record number of entries with more than 1,000 runners in the 6-mile run and four times as many in the 2-mile run/walk along the Sacramento River Trail. All the proceeds from the event — more than $30,000 — were donated to Shasta Women’s Refuge and the Good News Rescue Mission, as well as to the SWEAT Running Club, City of Redding Parks & Recreation and Girls on the Run.

This year’s proceeds will benefit the Shasta Family YMCA, Girls on the Run and SWEAT Running Club.
