Turkey Trots and More Near Sedona

by: Editor on 11/2/2017

 

Get a head start on your New Year’s resolution (and burn some of those Thanksgiving calories) at one of Sedona’s exciting November races. On the big day, the annual Turkey Trot is a great option to start your holiday right. The 5k race is presented by the Sedona Running Company and loops from Posse Grounds Park. Registration is under $40, although day-of entries are often unavailable and early registration is recommended!

The short morning race takes runners up Soldier Pass Road, offering an incredible sunrise view. Thanksgiving-themed snacks and treats await at the finish line, as well as plenty of amped up appetites and endorphins to kick-start your holiday weekend.

The Southwest Series is hosting a number of running events November 5 – 10, although the Arizona event takes place in nearby Flagstaff November 8. The multi-state event has a “no runner left behind” motto, making it an accessible race for runners of all levels.

The Flagstaff Day 4 of the Southwest Series starts at 7 a.m., with packet pickup on November 4 at Berg Park River Trail. During packet pickup, there’s a complimentary pasta dinner that you can enjoy within the festival atmosphere. You’ll get an in-person sneak peek at the bling, your bib and enjoy workshops on last minute preparations for the big race.
