Start your holiday with the

Loveland Turkey Trot 5K!




Feel free to run or walk this

family-friendly Thanksgiving morning tradition

Planet Fitness presents the Loveland Turkey Trot! Our 5K will start at 8:30 a.m. at the McKee Medical Center (2000 Boise Ave). See you on Thanksgiving to run for a great cause!
In 2019, all proceeds will benefit our Blue Star Fund, which supports veterans in northern Colorado.
For safety and insurance purposes, all runners and walkers must be registered with the event and be wearing a bib. Non-registered participants will not be allowed on the course.

Loveland Turkey Trot is all about uniting our community, and 2020 will be no different! Participants will still get a limited edition long sleeved t-shirt and will run or walk a 5K on Thanksgiving Day from any location of their choice. We encourage all Turkey Trotters to share their experience with us to be entered in giveaways!

We are offering two registration types (in-person packet pickup and no-contact shipping). Please select the option that works best for you.

Let’s get virtual! Follow Loveland Turkey Trot on Facebook and Instagram to get more details on our race day giveaways!

In order to pick up your packets, you must sign up for a slot on SignUpGenius. Please click here to choose a time after registering.

When you pick up your packets, please have the name of the purchaser to pick up all shirts associated with the order. To promote social distancing measures, we ask that only one person per order picks up packets in person. To pick up for more than one group, email to coordinate. Packet pickup includes a swag bag with sponsorship items.

Due to COVID-19, packet pickup will be outdoors and only 3 people will be allowed to wait in line. Please adhere to 6 foot social distancing stickers during packet pickup and be sure to wear your mask or facial covering.

Top three runners in each age group will get a limited edition medal along with a pie to bring home!

What kind of giveaways??

Follow Loveland Turkey Trot on Facebook and Instagram for more details. We will be giving away 5 gift cards at $100 and several more at $25. All you have to do is participate!

Who does this event benefit?

One of the things that makes the Loveland Turkey Trot special is that it’s not-for-profit. 100% of proceeds benefit the McKee Wellness Foundation, which supports our Northern Colorado community by bridging the gaps in health and wellness. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, MWF has provided essential hospital workers with protective face masks, meals, and self care support.

Can I bring my stroller?

Yes, but strollers will need to begin the race at the back of the pack. For specific questions, email

Can I bring my dog?

Service animals are allowed, but please leave your other furry friends at home!

Can I show up without registering?

For safety and insurance purposes, all runners and walkers must be registered with the event and be wearing a bib. Non-registered participants will not be allowed on the course.
