Wild Turkey 5K at Lake Reba

Nov 28 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am
Wild Turkey 5K at Lake Reba @ Lake Reba Park

Start your Thanksgiving day off the way millions of others will. Thanksgiving is the number one race day in the USA. It makes perfect sense if you think about it. The number of calories you will take in that day will be far greater than a normal day. So the calories you burn need to be greater as well. Sign up and then start harassing your friends and family to sign up as well. There will be competitive runners, casual runners, run-walkers and walkers making the scenic loop around Lake Reba. This will be a chip racing event, but really the goal is to have fun and burn some calories. As an added bonus we will give you a really cool t-shirt to remember the day.

Proceeds from this race will be going to Grace Now Food Pantry right here in Richmond (www.gracenowky.com). Grace Now is a local food pantry and clothes closet serving Madison and surrounding counties. We will be collecting canned good donations for Grace Now on race day and at our packet pickup. If you would prefer you can make a financial donation that will go directly to Grace Now during the registration process.
