These great family races are a treat and are followed by our famous KeizerFEST Parade. So bring the whole family down and enjoy the day spent with our community and neighbors!

Turkey Dash

In 2011, Stephani Logan and Connie Dingeman visited the Keizer Chamber of Commerce to see if a partnership could be formed. You see, Stephani and Connie enjoy running and they wanted to share their love of running with their community on a day of the year where we could all use a little extra movement. At the time, our then Executive Director, Christine, knew she had met a couple of gals whose hearts were in the right place and agreed to become their partner. Each year a local non profit is chosen to receive a portion of the proceeds from the Turkey Dash registrations.

2022 Registrations Open: Sunday, September 25, 2022
