Feet flew as runners young and old raced through a brisk Turkey Trot, Saturday morning, Nov. 16, on Snoqualmie Ridge, helping raise money for Valley schools.

The day included a children’s 1K run that had families cruising around Cascade View Elementary School, and a 5K that had runners winding around the Ridge. The race wasn’t without one hiccup. In the 5K, leaders of the pack took a wrong turn, so the top group had to use the honor system to sort out the rankings. Still, the sixth annual Thanksgiving race was a hit by all measures, drawing many families and lots of budding young runners to the Ridge’s hilly course. Plus, it didn’t rain.

You can see the full race results here.

Friends Katie Ahlstrom, 10, and Jaiden Barrett, 10, of Fall City, wear turkey tutus in the run. Jaiden’s mom Kelly and sister Hailey wore similar garb in the run. “It’s fun, and I like to run with people we know,” said Kelly, who was inspired to run the Trot for the first time through her involvement with Sno Ridge Crossfit.

Brian Carroll of Sammamish crosses the finish line of the 5K a moment before Kristopher Amato. They finished eighth and ninth overall.


A tutu-clad Moe McCarty of North Bend starts the Trot. She finished the race in about 27 minutes, a decent time for her, she says.


Judy and Callie Dahlberg of Snohomish cross the finish line.
