Adirondack Health 5K Turkey Trot Walk and Run promises to work up appetite
LAKE PLACID – Before you dig into the Thanksgiving fixings, head down to the Olympic Oval this Thanksgiving morning (Thursday, Nov. 23) for the ninth annual Adirondack Health 5K Turkey Trot Walk and Run. Proceeds from the race benefit local food pantries and Adirondack Health’s Fit for Life program.
This healthy start to Thanksgiving begins at 8:30 a.m. at the Lake Placid Olympic Oval. A flat 5K course will take runners around Mirror Lake before returning to the Oval for the finish. Fun, Thanksgiving-themed first-, second- and third-place prizes will be given to the top male and female finishers. Every person registered will be eligible for a super-surprise raffle, and must be present to win.
Early registration by Nov. 21 is $25 per person or $75 for a group of four. Participants can also register until 8 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day for $30 per person or $100 for a group of four. Children 12 and under race free. Bring three non-perishable food items to donate and have $5 taken off your entry fee.
Race packets can be picked up on Nov. 22 at the Olympic Oval from 4-6 p.m. or on the morning of the race. Register at www.active.com to get a race t-shirt.
