The Scheels Turkey Trot at the Sparks Marina has become a Thanksgiving tradition in the Truckee Meadows. It's a great place to spend time with family and friends, and a healthy way to start a day usually filled with a whole lot of eating.

The 2012 event starts and finishes in the parking lot of Scheels at Legends at Sparks Marina. Participants can choose from a 10K (6.2 miles) run (timed) or a 2-mile walk or run (not timed) . The courses are user-friendly for both runners and walkers. The 10K race begins at 8:30 a.m. and will utilize city streets and the local bike path. The 2-mile run/walk will start at Scheels and circle around the Sparks Marina Park.
