About the Race
Welcome to the Littleton Parks, Recreation, and Community Education (PRCE) Turkey Trot, get your race in BEFORE Thanksgiving Day! The PRCE Turkey Trot is the perfect way to have you Turkey, stuffing, cranberry, mashed potatoes, gravy, pie.... and eat it too!

This event is fun for the whole family! Participants can run in the 5K or the 1 mile Fun Run/Walk. Both are open to all ages and abilities. Don’t forget to bring your furry friend for the 5K-9 division (1.0 mile distance too).

Make sure you use the hashtag #PRCETurkeyTrot when adding photos to social media, we want to see you huffin' for the stuffin' while keeping your eyes on the pies!
The 5K-9
Don't leave your furry friend at home! The 5K-9 (1.0 mile distance too) is part of the Littleton PRCE Turkey Trot!

There are lots of people, noises and excitement so for the safety of your dog and others around you:

-Please only bring dogs that are well-behaved and used to being around other dogs and people.

-Dogs should be kept on leash that is shorter than six feet — no retractable leashes, which may be hazardous in a crowd

-Please clean up after your dog — bags are available but you can bring your own. You will be disqualified for leaving presents on the race course!

-Limit one (1) dog per person.

-Dogs should be at least six-months-old and up to date on vaccinations.

-Please remember, no dogs are allowed in the facilities.
