Join us for the 42nd Annual Mile High United Way Turkey Trot!

Run or walk the four-mile course at Denver's beautiful Washington Park or do the quarter mile Family Fun Run with the kids. Your participation in the Turkey Trot helps Mile High United Way build the community by improving childhood literacy, increasing high school graduation rates and ensuring economic self-sufficiency for adults and families. There's so much more to do than just the race! Our Start Village will have fun activities, music, coffee and food vendors. Make sure to stroll through our Finish Village featuring the Great Divide Beer Garden (21+), DJ’s, great booths and lots of freebies.

Entry fee includes: super soft collectible t-shirt, bib with timing tag, and great pre/post race expos. First 10,000 runners will receive a t-shirt. A small snack and beer available in the Finish Village. Packets available for delivery (for a nominal charge), pre-race day pick-up, and race day pick-up. Competitive runners in limited waves. Dogs and strollers are welcome in the final two waves, though we do ask dog owners make a small donation for a Turkey Trot doggie bandana.
