The sixth annual Snoqualmie Ridge Turkey Trot, a five-kilometer race and children's one-kilometer run, begins at 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 16, at Cascade View Elementary School in Snoqualmie.

A pancake breakfast follows at 9:30 a.m.

The race is a benefit for all Snoqualmie Valley Elementary Schools. Each runner gets to designate which school his or her pre-registration dollars go to.

Registration is $27, including a shirt, for the 5K race, $11 for the children's race.

The school will be open to runners as a place to warm up and stay dry. Awards and a prize raffle follows the run.

The course starts and ends at the Cascade View Elementary School bell tower. The five-kilometer run is USATF certified and runs through the rolling hills of residential streets and paved bike paths. The one-K children's race does a lap around the school. For detailed maps of the courses, or to sign up, visit www.runsnoqualmie.com.
