One of the most popular holiday traditions in the Wood River Valley is the annual Turkey Trot held on Thanksgiving morning, which this year will be Thursday, November 22.
The 5K Fun Run and Walk, sponsored by The Chamber, is a great community event and is extremely popular with locals and visitors alike. Nearly 600 folks are expected to enjoy trotting on Thanksgiving Day in downtown Hailey, along the Big Wood River and through the Wood River Land Trust’s beautiful Draper Wood River Preserve. The Turkey Trot starts at 10:00am at Sturtevant’s in Hailey, located at 1 West Carbonate. As Chamber Executive Director Jeff Bacon notes, “It’s the perfect way to burn off some calories with your friends and neighbors before the big feast. Come out and join us.”
