At Mirada are intent is a bit different. We are not racing Turkeys, dancing, or singing. We want to encourage our children to make healthy choices and know from experience they are fun choices. We invite all families to attend and cheer on students as they run. After the race, the students and families will have lunch together.

And these gals!

All except that one town in Texas who since 1912 race actual Turkeys.

These folks ....

Unfortunately, families can not run with their children. However, feel free to train with them at home to show your support. We also welcome you to volunteer for the Turkey Trot as a team member or our 2018/2019 coordinator.

Our annual fun run around Thanksgiving is a tradition all its own. Americans, among others, have been running the Turkey Trot since 1896. Traditionally, turkey trots are held because Americans anticipate indulgent Thanksgiving feasts and run in turkey trots to burn off calories.
