Event Details 

The Rotary Turkey Trot & Fall Fest will take place at Bronte Creek Provincial Park*.  Click here to learn more about the location of the event.  

This year's event will offer 4 different races; there will be a 10K and a 5K timed race, as well as a 5K walk / run and a 1K Fun Run that will not  be timed.  

The 10K and 5K events start at 11:00am. The 1K Fun Run will start at 12:30pm. Race Day Registration will open at 9:30am.  All runners for the timed events are asked to arrive before 10:00am to ensure we can assign all race bibs and get everyone to the starting line on time!

Medals will be awarded to all runners in the 10K and 5K timed events, as well as to those participating in the 1K Fun Run.  Prizes will be awarded to the top male and female finisher within each of our 5 age brackets.


This year’s event will offer a range of other family-friendly activities including a Kid-Zone (bouncy house, face painting, crafts table, pop corn) and local vendors. Plus will offer free pancakes for breakfast.  And of course Turkey Tim, our resident mascot, will be there for fun and photos!
