“Run to Change Lives!” Come out and Trot, Stroll, Run, or Walk and join Castle Rock’s Thanksgiving morning tradition with the 13th Annual Turkey ROCK Trot presented by Castle Rock Adventist Hospital.

You and the Turkey ROCK Trot are changing lives by “Giving Back to the Community.” All of the proceeds from registrations and sponsorships are given to the Douglas Elbert Task Force to meet the immediate needs of residents of Douglas and Elbert counties who are in financial distress and/or at risk of becoming homeless. Whether you are a serious runner or leisurely walker, bring the whole family, start a new tradition and join the fun.

Come early for our Expo opening at 8AM Thanksgiving morning inside the WARM Douglas County Events Center. There will be over 30 vendors, free Flippin’ Flapjacks, coffee, and limited giveaways. Plus we have a bounce house, face painting, and baloon twisting for the kiddos!

Note: You may move to a slower wave than assigned, but you cannot move to a faster wave than assigned. Remember your time does not start until you cross the timing mats.

  • Wave #2 – This wave is for anyone planning to RUN at a 8-10 minute per mile pace.
  • Wave #3 – This wave is for anyone planning to RUN at a 10-12 minute per mile pace.
  • Wave #4 – This wave is for anyone planning to RUN slower than a 12 minute per mile pace.
  • Wave #5 – This wave is for ALL leisurely walkers with strollers and dogs. Yes, and you too “night before Thanksgiving” partiers.
