Celebrate & Unite

Join us for our 11th Annual Folsom Firecracker. It is a great way to kick off Independence Day and we’re thrilled to bring this event back after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.

The event will benefit Shriners Children’s Northern California, located here in Sacramento County off Hwy. 50 adjacent to the UC Davis Med Center. Shriners Children’s mission statement is to provide the highest quality care to children with neuromusculoskeletal conditions, burn injuries and other special healthcare needs within a compassionate, family-centered and collaborative care environment.

Registration includes a race t-shirt, chip timing, eligibility for age group awards, and (NEW for 2022!) a sparkly red-white-and-blue finisher’s medal. A $5 discount is offered for youth participants ages 1 to 12 years. Early entry is offered for just $30 through May 31. We encourage you to register early!

2022 Distances

5K, 10K and a new 2 Mile Course.

Three new courses for 2022. The 2 Mile is perfect for families, younger participants, and those with strollers or well-behaved dogs.

All courses start and finish on Parkshore Drive and travel along the tree-lined Jedidiah Smith Bike trail and offer views of the pristine blue waters of the American River. 

Note: course is 95% paved, however there are some brief portions of the route on dirt.

How to Register

All registration is handled online. Click here to register.

Entry Fees

Entry fees are $30 by May 31, $35 from June 1 – June 20, $40 from June 21-July 1, and $45 July 2-4. There is a $5 discount for children ages 1-12 which will apply automatically during registration based on the child’s date of birth.

To ensure safety on the race course, as well as that every participant receives a finisher medal, there is a Field Limit for this event. Please register early to ensure your space. As of June 20th, the race is 65% full.

Finisher medal preview is below.

Big News!! ⭐️ We're happy to share that the Half Marathon distance will be returning to the 2022 Davis Turkey Trot on Saturday, November 19th. We have a brand-new course we think you'll love. It will kick off the morning at 7:50 a.m.

We have also made the following changes to the event:

-> Addition of Adaptive Sub-Divisions for the timed events; with prizes to the top finishers by gender per subdivision. Adaptive Divisions are: Wheelchair; Duo Team (an able-bodied runner or walker pushing a non-ambulatory person in a customized racing wheelchair); Visually Impaired; Limb Deficiency/Limb Difference; Intellectual Impairment.

-> A Dog Division for the 2 Mile; dogs entered in this category will be ranked by size. Top Dogs will receive prizes. (Dog Division is optional). Enter the dog division during your usual 2 Mile registration process for the human entrant. No extra fee for Dog Division entry.

-> An Adaptive Kids 50yd Event for ages 18 and Under to be inclusive of youth participants with a disability and/or who use an assistive mobility technology

-> Re-routing of all the Kids Events so they start and finish in the same place (on B Street)

-> Awards to Unofficial 15K finishers (top three by gender)

We're hard at work to ensure 2022 is the best year yet for all our Davis Turkey Trotters.

🐶 Who will be the "Top Dog" this year in the Davis Turkey Trot 'Dog Jog' 2 Mile Race? 

The 2-Mile "Dog Jog" division (benefiting the @yolo_spca ) is the perfect distance for both runners and walkers to participate with their pup. 

This year, at the request of many past participants, we are adding a NEW option: to have 2 Mile results for dogs.  Dogs will be classified into divisions by size and the top dogs (pun intended😄) in each division will receive a prize. 

Dog division entry is handled during the registration process for the 2 Mile race. Entering the dog division is optional and will not remove you from the human race results, and you'll still be eligible for (human) age division awards. 

One dog may be registered for the dog division per human entrant. If two people will be running with one dog (as shown above), you should only enter the dog in the dog division on one of the human's entries (not both). 

Deadline to enter your dog in the dog division is Wednesday, November 16.  Race day is Saturday, November 19th.
