Founded & produced by the Silicon Valley Leadership Group Foundation

For 15 years, the Silicon Valley Turkey Trot has worked to build community and support thousands of families in need in our community. The health and safety of everyone we engage with has always been our top priority. Now, as the world battles the COVID-19 pandemic, our concern for the running community has been heightened even further and is impacting every decision we make. As we look ahead to the return of running events, we will follow the guidance from our government partners regarding the safe resumption of in-person races.

At this time, the 2020 Applied Materials Silicon Valley Turkey Trot is proceeding as planned. The Silicon valley leadership Group foundation team is exploring alternatives, modifications, and new approaches, all of which would need to follow government guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our runners for our in-person events to return. We will continue to provide updates in as timely a manner as possible.

We appreciate how difficult it is for runners to plan your participation given all the uncertainty and thank you for your support and patience.

Providing health, hope and a home.
