Welcome to the Turkey Chase, Napa’s only Thanksgiving Day 5K/10K! 

The Napa Valley Turkey Chase is a fun family event! Race, jog or walk this fast, paved course around the Napa Valley College and the Napa River Trail and work up your Thanksgiving appetite!

The start & finish line are located in lot J behind the Napa Valley College track. Lot J will also be the staging area for packet pick-up, day of race registration, booths and toilets. There is NO PARKING in lot J .

The 10K course runs a counterclockwise loop around the college and then meets the Napa River Trail. Runners will go north to a turn around under the Imola bridge near mile 2. Then they will run south to Kennedy Park where the course makes a small counterclockwise loop near the skate park and then retraces the route back up the river trail. The 10K course then meets back up with the 5K by the baseball field and finishes back in lot J.

The 5K course runs the same counterclockwise loop part way around the college and then connects to the Napa River Trail. Runners will immediately proceed south past mile 2 and turn at the baseball field to head to the finish back in lot J. Both courses have been measured by wheel and GPS, but it is not a USATF certified course.
