November 21, 2020 - November 28, 2020—All Day

Kick off the holiday season by joining the biggest Thanksgiving block party in the country, the 15th annual Virtual Applied Materials Silicon Valley Turkey Trot 5K/10K! The virtual race takes place the week of Thanksgiving, November 21-29.

This is the 15th year for the Applied Materials Silicon Valley Turkey Trot, which works to build community and support thousands of families in need in the Silicon Valley and draws a crowd of 25,000 or more. While organizers and participants are disappointed not to be able to meet in person, the health and safety of the community is the most important consideration. And this year, there will be more exciting options to choose from, so there is an event for every participant! Options include:

  • 5K Virtual Run/Walk
  • 10K Virtual Run
  • 10K Virtual Run for Challenged Athletes
  • Virtual Kids’ Fun Run
  • Virtual Doggie Dash
  • Virtual 5K CEO Executive Challenge

Not sure how to participate in a virtual run? More information here! Participants can walk or run anywhere, any time; on a treadmill, with family, or on your own. Use the RaceJoy app or your own tracking app to record your time and complete the distance you registered for.

Race registrations support local charities and score SWAG including a long-sleeve race shirt, digital race bib, and free entry into our NEW Hometown Hero Challenge! It’s more important than ever to be a good neighbor right now, so we are challenging YOU to complete 20 good deeds at home and in your community leading up to the race.
