Of course we're Turkey Trotting tomorrow! Participants from the Ebensburg area, 18 states, and the District of Columbia are helping to make this the biggest Turkey Trot ever. Snow and cold just add to the fun and adventure and make the post-race hot apple cider and goodies all the better.
And let it be known that this race is amazingly efficient. We aim to start on time (9:00 a.m.), buzz through the awards, and wrap everything up so that you can be home for your Thanksgiving celebrations.
So before the big day arrives, here are four things to know:
- Pre-Race Packet Pick Up on Wednesday – Stop by Dauntless Fire Station (209 W. Sample St.) on Wednesday from 4:30-8:30 p.m. to pick up your race packet. If you can’t make it Wednesday, you can pick it your packet on Thursday beginning at 7:30 a.m.
- Don’t Forget Dorothy Day! – Please bring canned goods and personal hygiene products for the Dorothy Day Center at Saint Francis University. In addition to race proceeds, we’d like to provide the Dorothy Day Center with an entire truckload of supplies to help with their mission to serve local families in need.
- Got Old Sneakers? – We also will be collecting gently worn shoes for Soles for Souls, a global not-for-profit institution that fights poverty by distributing shoes and clothing. If you have old running shoes, bring them laced together or attached as a pair.
- Be Thankful! – This race would not be possible if it weren't for our fantastic and generous volunteers. As you're running and enjoying the Turkey Trot this year, please take the time to thank our world-class volunteers.
