Start off your Thanksgiving morning with a 5K run or walk around Whitefish, starting and ending at the North Valley Food Bank. 

COURSE: The 3.1 mile course begins at the North Valley Food Bank. Participants will run or walk down Baker Ave. into downtown Whitefish, and make left turns on East 3rd Street and Obrien Ave, crossing the Whitefish River on the footbridge. Trotters will turn right onto Eliot Ave as it turns into West 5th St, turn right on Geddes Ave, left on West 3rd Street, left on Karrow, left on West 7th Street, and right onto Obrien back to the start. The route will be marked and volunteer course marshals will help direct participants along the route. 

Please be advised that weather conditions are variable, and the course will likely be icy in certain spots. We highly recommend bringing ice spikes for your running shoes!

There will not be an aid station along the route, but water and snacks will be provided at the finish area.

PARKING: Limited parking is available courtesy of The Wave Aquatic & Fitness Center in the nearby parking lot.
