Special Event: Thanksgiving 2019 parkrun

It's Thanksgiving! So come join us for Perrigo parkrun's first annual "Turkey Trot" on Thursday November 28th. The price (ahem, it's FREE!), and the swag-free, community-focused vibe of a Thanksgiving parkrun are hard to beat.


Thanksgiving is the largest running day in the world, with around 1 million Americans taking part in running events around the country. It is also one of only two days each year when you can do a parkrun USA event that’s not on a Saturday. (The other is New Years.)

At Perrigo, we will have our Run Briefing at 8.55am as usual, with the run start at 9am.

If you're out of town, then check out the parkrun "Special Events" page to see if there is a Thanksgiving parkrun near you! Currently listed parkruns include: Clermont Waterfront (FL), College Park (MD), Delaware and Raritan Canal parkrun (NJ), Eagan (MN), Kensington (MD), Jamaica Pond (MA), Lillie (MI), Livonia (MI), Oak Grove (KY), Perrigo (WA), Rex Plex North (FL), and Terry Hershey (TX), with more to be announced in the coming weeks!

All parkrun USA events will go ahead as usual on Saturday November 30th.

New Years Day is the other day when additional parkruns are possible. It’s also the one day of the year when it may be possible to do two nearby parkruns on the same day. A current listing of New Years parkruns can also be found in the list linked above, but it will be updated in the coming weeks. At present we can confirm that a New Years Double will be available in the Seattle area - the first to be held here at Perrigo at 8:30am, with Renton following us at 10:30am.
