Turkey Day is almost here! Before you sit down to enjoy a turkey feast with your family and friends, make time in the morning for a pre-Thanksgiving dinner workout.
Here's a few local options to try:
7th Annual Toss Your Turkey 5K: Hosted by the Pottsgrove High School Cross Country Team, come out to run a 5K starting at Montgomery County Community College! All entrants will have the opportunity to “toss” a frozen turkey (which will be provided). The male and female who tosses his/her turkey the farthest AND runs the 5k will win Saucony shoes from Chester County Running Store! Participants can register the day of if they did not pre-registered.
2nd Annual Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot: A 5K run and 1 mile fun run brought to you by the Wellness Council of Boyertown! If you did not pre-register, you can still sign up the day of and participate! Special prizes will be awarded to the high school team with the most runners on the day of the event, to the first responders with the most responders from one location and to the family with the most participants! The Wellness Council is asking all runners to bring a box of protein bars or granola bars, instead of a canned good, for the Salvation Army canteen truck.
