9th annual Thanksgiving Day RUN-DEZVOUS 5k/1 mile

Thursday, November 21st, 2024 @ 10:00 AM


Thanks to all participants in the 2023 race -- donations to the Thurston County Food Bank and the Union Gospel Mission totaled $3,083 and over 500 non-perishable food items.

Online registration: (free to register with no fees) open until 5:00 AM on Thanksgiving morning. Day of Race registration will occur from 9:00 AM -9:30 AM at Grace Community Covenant Church  (the corner of Wiggins Rd. and Yelm Hwy.). Pre-registered athletes please pick up your race bib number by 9:30 AM. If you arrive after 9:30 AM to register, you may still run and donate but do not plan on having official results.

Cost: $10 suggested donation or donation of some non-perishable food items would be great, but if cost is a factor do not feel obligated and come run anyways -- If you have a big family donate what you can, but please do not let cost be a factor. Note: there are zero operating costs for this event and no sign-up fees, so all donations will go directly to the Thurston County Food Bank and the Union Gospel Mission of Olympia

Start time: 5k will start at 10:00 AM at Grace Community Covenant Church (the corner of Wiggins Rd. and Yelm Hwy.) -- 5501 Wiggins Rd. SE

                  1 mile will start just after the start of the 5k, at about 10:02 AM

Parking: There is ample parking at the church. Make sure if you are parking along the start/finish area at the church that you back in, so that if you are leaving as racers are finishing you can see them as you are pulling out.

Awards: 1st place in the youth (18 and under), open (19-39), and masters  (40+) categories in the 5k will receive some kind of award. Top 3 overall (12 and under) in the 1 mile will receive awards.
