Issaquah's annual Turkey Trot 5K race is moving to downtown Issaquah this year!
Due to the race's growth from 325 participants in 2010 to more than 3,800
last year, the race needed a new home. All proceeds will benefit the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank.
From 7:30-11:30 a.m. Nov. 23, roads leading into and out of the downtown area will be blocked. The downtown and nearby Gilman Village neighborhoods are likely to experience an increase in traffic flow and greater utilization of public street-side parking.
The route (and road closures) are shown on this map.
Local residents will be able to come and go from their homes on race day. Residents, however, are asked to refrain from driving on the race route while racers are present.
Event organizers do expect a high amount of traffic congestion before, during and after the race time. Please plan ahead!
