These are chip-timed races on a flat course that has both pavement and packed dirt. Come and run or cheer. Or both!
Costumes are welcome, so break out your turkey suit and let's go! Here are the ways to take part:
Also! Everyone who takes part in the Bishop Ranch Turkey Trot is encouraged to take part in the Rockstar Challenge. This is a totally free challenge to do good things in your community:
Bishop Ranch Turkey Trot is a Scena Performance event. Proceeds support Contra Costa Food Bank.

Also each runner unners receives a custom, perfectly cozy Bishop Ranch Turkey Trot long-sleeve shirt as part of registration. Shirts are not included for athletes under 5 but can be purchased separately during registration. These are cotton-feel shirts perfect for running or going to the market. Sizes run from small to XXXL and are in male and female cuts. Youth sizes are available. Got enough race shirts? No problem. We allow you to donate $5 to charity instead.
