2019 Thanksgiving Day Race

Join us on November 28 for our 40th annual Thanksgiving Day Race to the top of the park before you sit down for the big holiday meal. We have some special surprises since we’re celebrating a big anniversary this year.

This race starts at 9 a.m. near the Iroquois Amphitheater, goes up to the top of the park, then back down the hill.


-Each participant will receive a commemorative Finisher’s Medal marking both the race and its 40th year.
-We will be drawing for TWO Grand Prizes of $400 after the race (you must be present to win).
-Age group winners will receive their awards on race day, instead of by mail
