It’s the 13th year of the iconic Seattle Turkey Trot that was created by three Seattle Ballardites who wanted to run on Thanksgiving to counteract the huge meals that they’d be devouring later that evening. The dog-friendly run begins at 9 am in the Sunset Hill neighborhood of Ballard and finishes at Golden Gardens Park. It’s an extremely casual run, with three waves of starters: runners, trotters, and walkers.

Time: 9 am
Location: 32nd Avenue NW and NW 85th Street, Ballard
Admission: $20+; registration is available online

Go on a hike. Don’t let the name fool you: this hike is a beloved trail up Tiger Mountain in the Issaquah Alps. Not only is this a popular four-mile hike, but it’s also a popular place to go paragliding. You’ll love the easy gradual incline and the pit stop at the first launch zone — a grassy field that has a beautiful view of Mt. Rainier. Once you take in the view, it’s a short 15 to 20 minutes to the second and final viewpoint. A nice flat spot with a view of Issaquah down below and Seattle in the distance. Information about the hike can be found online.
