Join thousands of Coachella Valley residents before your big Thanksgiving feast for a run, trot or stroll along Palm Desert’s El Paseo shopping district, all in the spirit of supporting a great local cause. 

All proceeds of The 12th Annual Fortem Financial Thanksgiving Day 5K go directly to Martha’s Village & Kitchen’s programs and services that help impoverished and homeless residents of Coachella Valley. So gather your co-workers, friends and family for some festive fun that helps your neighbors in need. Children in strollers and dogs on leashes are welcomed and encouraged, as are turkey hats and running tutus. 

Medal presentations will be made to the overall top three fastest runners, as well as to the top three fastest males and females across eighteen different age categories. Post-race activities include Festival Row exhibitor booths, Kids Zone games and face painting, and a beer garden for those 21 and older.

Volunteers are needed and sponsor opportunities are available. Visit to register or for additional information.

$43 Adult (13 years and older), $35 Child (12 years and younger). Early registration discounts available!
