Join us on Thanksgiving Day for the 2024 running of the Bishop Ranch Turkey Trot - our inaugural run! We will gather at Bishop Ranch City Center in San Ramon for a run around the lakes and gardens. 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:

  • The FAST Turkey 5k is a race designed for people who will finish in under 40 minutes. Fast! This race starts at 8am. Finish with the cheering crowd!
  • The Festive 5k, is a race for the rest of us. This race starts at 8:40. Finish with a smile on your face!
  • The TINY Turkey starts at 9:00 am and is a short run around City Center for children under 5. This is a 50-yard dash that's very fun. Get your camera/cell phone ready!

Bishop Ranch Turkey Trot is a Scena Performance event.  Proceeds support Contra Costa Food Bank.
