Before your Thanksgiving feast, join thousands for a festive run, trot or stroll along El Paseo in Palm Desert early on Thanksgiving Morning! All proceeds from the Fortem Financial Thanksgiving Day 5K go to support Martha’s Village & Kitchen’s services for our impoverished and homeless neighbors in the Coachella Valley.
This family-friendly event welcomes young children in strollers and dogs on leashes. For kids there’s free face-painting, temporary tattoos, arts and crafts and more in the Kids Zone. Adults 21 years old and above are welcome to a post-race complimentary beer in the Beer Garden (while supplies last, ID required).
The race is timed for competitive runners and a $250 cash prize will be awarded to the 1st place male and female finisher from event sponsor Toyota of the Desert. The top three fastest males and females across several age categories are awarded medals.
Register for the race or sign up to volunteer at https://marthasvillage5k.org. Participants who register by October 31st qualify for “early turkey” discounts!
