Kick Off Thanksgiving Day at Pemberton Park's Turkey Trek 5K
Before you gear up for your big Thanksgiving feast, come out to Pemberton Park for the 4th Annual Turkey Trek 5K on Thursday, November 22. The trek will wind through Pemberton's beautiful forests, meadows and wetlands. The course is mostly flat, with one or two small hills - a perfect run (or walk) for participants of all levels.
The race will begin promptly at 9:00am. Gift certificates and awards will be awarded to top-finishing males and females in seven different age groups. A prize will also be awarded to the participant dressed in the best Thanksgiving costume. Participants can enjoy healthy refreshments as well as pie and ice cream afterwards - it is Thanksgiving after all!
The registration fee for the Turkey Trek is $20 per participant. Online registration is available at http://www.pembertonpark.org/annual-turkey-trek.html. (Online registration closes November 21 at 8pm.) On-site registration will also be available the morning of the event beginning at 7:30am.
All proceeds from the race will go towards Pemberton Historical Park's Environmental Education Programs. Thank you for your support!
