Turkey Trot!


Thanksgiving is tomorrow! That means gorging yourself on turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and that goopy green bean casserole. Then crashing on the sofa and watching football (probably while snoozing.) No? You try to lead a healthy lifestyle, and want to have a better day? Start your day off with the Long Beach Turkey Trot.  The Thanksgiving Day 5K/10K Run/Walk and Kids 1/2-Mile Wingding will take place at the Granada Boat Launch Ramp in BS. There are 3 different start times for the Turkey Trot, and 2 start times for the kiddos. You can register on race day, but you will need to do so at least 30 minutes prior to your selected start time. Cost is $40 (cash only.) Wait, what? Yes. This event raises thousands of dollars needed for the Community Action Team. 100% of the amount raised goes towards this charity. The C.A.T. puts on more than 60 annual projects/events/contests focused mostly on animal, environmental and youth welfare.

The whole course is on the beach path, you can either run or walk, whatever your preference. There will be water stations, restrooms, and refreshments. So, start your T-day off with a lovely oceanfront walk. Then have a light turkey dinner. Or don’t. At least if you Turkey Trot, maybe you won’t feel so guilty when you stuff yourself with stuffing…
