The idea of a fun race around Donner Lake was hatched back in 1976 by a small group of enthusiastic runners who wanted to make room for all the turkey and pies they were going to  be eating in the weeks ahead. Thirty-eight years later the Donner Lake Turkey Trot is a popular event attracting 200 runners from Reno, Sacramento & The Bay Area as well as many locals who enjoy the excuse to support a good cause & get out for a morning run/walk. Auburn Ski Club Junior Nordic Team organizes the race as a fundraiser and a way to get ready for the ski season. The history of the event has always been to be fun and funky and happens regardless of the weather. The event has happened with snowstorms, below freezing temperatures, ice, rain and beautiful sunny days. Auburn Ski Club has upgraded the timing of the event from the self timing days, but still tries to keep the spirit of fun and families.

The walking event is a way for participants to get more time for the event. The race winners will only come from the runner’s division.  If you plan to jog you should enter the runners division.
