The Real Hamden Turkey Trot!
RACE HAS SOLD OUT!
Tired of running the same old out-and-back 5k on the canal trail?
Want to give trail running a try?
Live Loud Running and the Town of Hamden proudly present the Second Annual Brooksvale Trails Turkey Trot, Thanksgiving Sunday (November 26th, 2023). Offering both a 10k and a 5k with very generous cutoffs- you can hike this whole thing and still make it back for bagels and donuts!
Serving as both a great entry point to trail running as well as offering a fast course for the seasoned vet, the trails at Brooksvale are at times insanely runnable with just enough roots and rocks to make you pay attention.
It can be flat and fast at times or a leafy, rooty, rocky mess. Might be some standing water- this is a trail race and along with racing your friends you're also racing the elements. It's what makes it awesome.

Bagels, coffee and donuts from nearby Hamden eatery Whitney Donuts will be served! Maple bacon donuts!
The Brooksvale Park Gift Fund is a designated fund to be utilized only at Brooksvale Park- this will ensure future park users access to the trails as well as the park's ongoing dedication to providing educational opportunities for the public to engage in animal stewardship. Brooksvale Park is open to the public daily and is a vital part of Hamden's rich cultural history; from the amazing community garden as well as the active beehives and finally the multi-use fields.
Event's current local time: 3:27 AM ET
