Turkey-Donut Predict Run

Sat November 18, 2023 Fort Collins, CO 80526 US Directions


Turkey Donut Predict 5K

9:00AM MST - 10:15AM MST


2201 S Shields Street
Rolland Moore Park - Shelter 2 (West Side)
Fort Collins, CO US 80526


Just you wait, because this isn't your ol' run-of-the-mill 5k. Runners have to estimate their finishing time prior to the start; we don't allow time keeping devices of any kind. The top 5 people that come closest to their estimate win. So just because you're fast doesn't mean you'll win this one.

The race is FREE and a fundraiser for the Food Bank for Larimer County. All are welcome to participate in the run, but you have to donate to be eligible for the raffle (which is where the real action is).

BOTH online pre-registration and race day registration are available (though pre-registration makes our lives easier).

This year, we'll open the start line at 9a. 
**NEW FOR 2023** - The start line is separate from the finish line.  You'll start over by the volleyball courts (100 yards from the check-in table) and finish in the usual spot.  If you don't cross the start line, your time won't register!
You can start whenever you like, as long as you're back by 10:15a.  We'll be directing folks to loosely alternate which direction (east/westbound) they head on the Spring Creek Trail.

The event is chip timed.  We'll provide the chips.  If you're a FCRC member with a Tortoise & Hare bib, no need to bring it.

This is a PREDICTION run.  Enter the time you think you'll run on your registration form.  NO WATCHES or timepieces of any sort allowed during the run.  We encourage you to rat out your fellow runners!

All who donate to the Food Bank receive a ticket for our famous raffle, where we have prize packs from many local businesses and restaurants, race entries, and much more! Our biggest giveaway of the year!  The raffle starts at 10:15a SHARP, you must be present to win, and each individual donating (regardless of size of donation) gets ONE ticket.

We are STRONGLY encouraging monetary donations this year, which you can make right on your registration form.  Cash $$$ helps the most. The Food Bank has resources to buy products at much, much deeper discounts than any of us could buy. The $5 you spend on a 2 jars of PB could be turned into 10 jars through the Food Banks sources.

This is a free event so come join the community and test out your legs for the upcoming turkey day races.
