5K - 9 am race start
Kids 1/2 miler - 8:40 am race start
Come join us on Thanksgiving morning for our 9th annual Thanksgiving Day race! Run For Pie has become one of Santa Cruz County's favorite holiday traditions. This will be our second official year at Sky Park in Scotts Valley. Bring the whole family (or your pet turkey) out to run or walk a 5K in the park. Run for Pie also includes a 1/2 mile Turkey Chase Race for kids. All participants get a slice of pumpkin pie at the finish, all registered 5K racers get a shirt. This event will benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank. Be sure to register today — this race sells out early every year!
Second Harvest Food Bank reaches 55,000 people EVERY MONTH. We are proud to partner with this community organization to help provide meals to those in need in Santa Cruz County. When you register, you have the option to donate to Second Harvest. Please consider donating just $1 which provides 4 meals for someone in need.
