Route information
Terrain: Bike path
Elevation: Mostly flat (some gently rolling hills)
Make sure you're primed and prepped for your Thanksgiving feast with this 5k turkey trot through Simi Valley. Whether its your first or your fiftieth 5k, this course is designed with all runners in mind.
Runners will start at Rancho Simi Park and run along the Arroyo bike path along the Arroyo Creek. Still home to ducks and herons who are soaking up the sun while playing in the gently flowing water, runners will enjoy the beautiful setting as they pace along the gently undulating path.
The Arroyo bike path is mostly flat with some gentle rolling hills, providing a perfect opportunity for runners to smash their personal record before their dinner plate.

The course was under managed and when individuals were hurt there was no aide or event organizers in site. The start was fine but the first turn off the start was very dangerous, also the turn around point was clearly marked but one had to dodge runners going the other direction as they ran to and from the turn around and up the course. It is not a flat course at all and actually on a gradual incline with storm drains to go over.

poor signage as to where to check in, slow check in process, poor communication as to how to pick up your shirt. The back drop was cool except that we had to take photos with sun in camera. no bananas or snacks afterwards.
