Turkey Trot is ECHO’s annual 5K walk/run that raises funds to help feed families during the holidays. In previous years, it would start and end at Atascadero Lake Park on Thanksgiving Day.. This year, due to COVID-19 safety concerns, it’s going virtual, which means we can have an unlimited number of participants throughout the two week period around Thanksgiving.  Questions?  Check our our FAQ's here.  


What is a Virtual 5K?

A virtual race is very similar to a live race. You register, you run/walk (on the honor system), in support of a good cause; but they differ from live events because you get to complete your run when you like… where you like.  Atascadero Lake Park is a great venue for the run as once around is 5K.  However, you can complete your run anywhere you like... the neighborhood, a local park, treadmill, track, downtown or country roads. You get to decide!

Turkey Trot 2020 will take place November 15 - 29, 2020.
