The 2018 Woodland Hills Foundation H.U.G.S Turkey Trot is a 5K (3.1 miles) Run/Walk Race and a One Mile Family Fun Run that will be held at the Woodland Hills High School. This event is for experienced and casual runners/walkers alike. Bring the whole family and work off some extra calories before Thanksgiving! This will be a great FAMILY event!  Costumes are encouraged!  

We are working with the Cross Country team and the administration to map out a race course that will be within the high school's campus. We're trying to make the 5K Turkey Trot course as smooth as possible, but it is called the Woodland *Hills* Turkey Trot! The course will include hills, running on grass/leaves and over small streams. This course is NOT suitable for strollers. Please note this is NOT a chip-timed race. 

The Family Fun Run will consist of two laps around the high school building. This course is completely flat and on the sidewalk/pavement. This course is suitable for strollers.

Participants 18 years and under can register for $5.  Adults over the age of 18 can register for $10.  The 5k Run/Walk kicks off at 9 am and the 1 Mile Family Fun Run/Walk will be at 9:30 am.  You may register for the 5k and participate in the 1 mile without purchasing an additional registration.  

This event is organized by H.U.G.S, a program of The Woodland Hills Foundation.

Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Please be advised that we do have a photographer at all of our HUGS events. Photographs will be uploaded to the website as well as the WHSD HUGS facebook page. If you do not wish to be photographed please let one of our volunteers know immediately and we will give you a green wrist band so that you will not be photographed.

We have been working with the Woodland Hills administration, cross country team, and grounds crew to establish a fun and challenging 5K course. In order to keep the entire race on school grounds, the course will be run for (almost) two laps. The 1 Mile Fun Run is also two laps, all on the sidewalk around the high school.

The course highlighted in red is part of the cross country team's trail through a heavily wooded area that we are calling the "Extreme Turkey Warrior" course. This part of the course is included in the 5K distance. If you choose to take the "Easy as Pie" short-cut, please be aware, your total distance will be under the 5K. 

The Extreme Turkey Warrior course is a wooded trail with steep hills, streams, narrow paths, mud, and wet leaves. The WHSD grounds crew is working hard to widen the path, trim low branches, and spread straw on the muddy areas. This short part of the course is challenging, but quite fun!
