Crested Butte Turkey Trot

This year would have been the 5th Annual Turkey Trot.. 2020!


Because of current Covid requirements for events in Gunnison county, along with an increase in covid cases throughout Colorado, we have decided to CANCEL the event in order to keep everyone safe and healthy.


The spirit of this event is to raise awareness and support mental health in the Gunnison Valley. Please consider a donation to the gO Initiative and/or any of the other local organizations that provide mental health services in the valley.


Thank you!


The gO Initiative’s annual Turkey Trot  aims to raise awareness and destigmatize the topic of mental health and we truly appreciate you joining us on this mission. Each year the gO Initiative will choose a beneficiary that supports mental health services in the valley.

CB State of Mind

This year we are thrilled to partner with CB State of Mind in helping fulfill their mission to reduce the high rate of suicide in Crested Butte. Their work is based on the foundation and belief that suicide is preventable and everyone has a role to play in preventing suicide. Through decreasing stigma, increasing support/education, and increasing access their hope is simple: to save lives.


As you may or may not know, your mental health after an injury needs to be healed just as much as the injury itself. In addition to treating anxiety, depression, substance abuse and eating disorders, gO has a licensed clinical social worker,  who focuses on treating brain injuries and post traumatic stresses, which can follow a skiing or biking accident. We are excited to have a counselor on board and know that she will become an excellent resource in the valley.

We look forward to running with  you in 2021!

This  year a portion of the proceeds from the 5K will go to CB State of Mind, our chosen beneficiary for 2020. 



The course will start and finish at the 4way stop in Crested Butte (by the Chamber of Commerce)
