This Thanksgiving Morning, give back to your community and burn some calories before the big feast!

Online PR News – 11-November-2022 – Walnut Creek, California – Walnut Creek, CA: Before this year’s Thanksgiving feast, thousands of runners and walkers will join their friends, family and neighbors at the 30th Anniversary Forma Gym Turkey Trot in beautiful Downtown Walnut Creek. This race has become a tradition in the community, and includes something for everyone: a 5k, 10k, Kids’ Fun Runs and post-race festivities.

This event is 100% charity based, with ALL proceeds going to local schools and food banks Walnut Creek Education Foundation (WCEF), Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano and White Pony Express
The event is held Thanksgiving morning, November 24th from 8-10am.
The 5k and 10k begin and end at Civic Park (1375 Civic Dr., Walnut Creek, CA).
Awards will be presented to overall male and female finishers in the 5k, 10k, and to the top three finishers in each age division.

The event originally started as a fun way to encourage Forma Gym’s health club members and their families to “move their feet before they eat” on Thanksgiving morning, but has evolved into a tremendously successful charity event. This year’s race will benefit the Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano, Walnut Creek Education Foundation (WCEF), White Pony Express and Forma Kids Foundation in partnership with the RISE Paralysis Recovery Center - Scholarship Program.

On Thursday, November 17th from 1-3pm at Forma Gym in Walnut Creek, we will be hosting the 12th Annual BBQ and giveaway 500 Full Turkey Dinners for the people in our community with the highest needs this holiday season. The recipients will be given a Full Turkey as well as a packed grocery bag filled with sides to make a complete Thanksgiving meal.
