The 15th annual Klassen Turkey Trot will be held on Thanksgiving Day

More than 1,000 people will spend Thanksgiving morning getting some exercise at the 15th Annual Klassen Klassic Turkey Trot. The event is held at Murphys Park, behind Main Street in downtown Murphys, CA.
Brian Klassen and his daughters, Sally and Riley, put on this unofficial, family-oriented walk/run event, along with a handful of volunteers. Since 2007 the event has collected more than fifteen tons of food for local food banks and raised $23,000 for local families in need.
This year’s recipients are the Murphys Food Bank and “New Melones Lake Friends Scholarship in Memory of CT Tutthill.”
