What is quickly becoming Sedona’s favorite Thanksgiving tradition, the 7th First Annual Sedona Turkey Trot 5K, waddles through Posse Grounds Park on Nov. 24 at 9 a.m. The race, presented by Sedona Running Company, includes the Iron Turkey Challenge where racers compete carrying their Thanksgiving turkeys. Registration for the out-and-back race is $35 or $40 the morning of the event, though the majority of the time it is sold out come race day. An awards ceremony immediately follows the trot, so the entire event wraps up by 10:45 a.m., before it’s time to slice the pumpkin pie. Speaking of pie, there will be a piece waiting for racers at the finish line. For more information, visit www.sedonarunning.com or call 928-282-6956. – Erika Ayn Finch. Photo by Benedict Dugger.
