43rd Annual Fowl Fun Run
November 6th, 2021
Tom Turkey Tom Turkey will be running the 10K again this year! Beat the turkey and get a special prize!
Join us for the 43rd Annual Fowl Fun Run on Saturday, November 6, 2021 at 10 a.m. at Mount Vernon Christian School in Mount Vernon, WA. We offer two distances: a 5K run/walk and a 10K run. Both courses are USATF-certified and are run on flat, low-traffic farm roads in the Skagit Valley. We will be using the IPICO chip timing system to time both races. Food, refreshments, and awards will be available after the race in a warm gymnasium (as allowed by the Department of Health). Win a turkey or a pumpkin pie!
Back in 2021: Free Kids Half-Mile Run
The half-mile kids' run for those 8 years and under starts promptly at 9:15 a.m. This fun run is free, but children must be registered in person by 9:00 a.m.
The 10K run is a flat loop on farming roads south of downtown Mount Vernon with a short out and back section on Dike Road. The 5K run/walk is a flat course with an out-and-back section on Britt Road. Both races will start in front of the gym at Mount Vernon Christian School. The courses are not closed to vehicle traffic, but both courses have been designed to avoid crossing any dangerous intersections. One aid station will be located near the 3-mile mark on the 10K course.
Pumpkin pie, muffins, and refreshments will be available after the race for participants.
