Ormondale School's Turkey Trot set to run and walk on Saturday

Rain or shine, the sixth annual Turkey Trot is all set for Saturday morning, Nov. 20, at Ormondale School in Portola Valley.

Once again, the fun run and walk will loop around Shawnee Pass and Cervantes Road, and traffic will be blocked off in the area.

Volunteers with the Portola Valley Parent/Teacher Organization have just extended the registration deadline, allowing all community members to sign up for a discount as long as the forms are handed in to the Ormondale or Corte Madera school offices by Nov. 19.

The race starts with check-in and registration at Ormondale, at 200 Shawnee Pass, at 8 a.m. The 5K Fun Run/walk will begin at 9 a.m. and is open to all runners and walkers (no bikes or scooters).

The 1K Fun Run/walk will then start at 10. It is only open to those in kindergarten through third grade, and closed to adults, bikes and scooters.

Afterward, the awards ceremony will include prizes for the 5K male and female winners in each grade level up to eighth grade, and in the high school and adult categories.

Go to to get registration forms. The entry fee includes food and refreshments. Individuals may enter for $10 before race day, or for $15 the day of the race. The family rate is $20 before race day and $25 on race day. Long-sleeved T-shirts featuring student art will be for sale at the race for $15.
