Impacted Neighborhoods

Dear Neighbor,

The 3rd Annual Riverside Turkey Trot will be held Thursday, November 23 at Fairmount Park.

Participants will run/walk a 15K, 5K or Mini-Trot Kids Race starting at Fairmount Park and continue on to the surrounding streets.

We are looking forward to an exciting event and invite you to participate. Please be advised that your street may have traffic restrictions for a short period of time during the event. This will be brief as runners cross the road and then traffic is free to resume.

Participant safety is our utmost concern and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We will make every attempt to minimize wait time and safely meter vehicular traffic through the course. Please be advised this event is not advertised as a closed course. This means there will be opportunities for traffic to resume during crowd breaks with the assistance of event course marshals and Riverside police motorcycle officers. Please see the attached course map for a list of streets which may be impacted.
