bbturkeytrotmapCourse Information – The runs will follow a gently rolling 3 mile loop through the Eagle Point neighborhood. 6 milers will make 2 laps and 9 milers will go 3. There will be 2 water stations and 1 aid station on the course. The roads will remain open and we will run on the right, as if we are flowing with traffic (opposite of how you normally run on the road). The course will be marked well and course marshals will help at the major intersections. You may walk, jog, run, or trot around the course. Joggers, strollers and dogs are all allowed. If you bring your furry friend make sure to have something to pick up after them and keep them on a leash at all times.

Costumes – Are strongly recommended. Come as your best Bear or Turkey, or whatever else makes you feel festive, and you may walk away with a cool prize from one of our sponsors! Remember, this is a fun event so that we can give thanks for living a healthy lifestyle, not the Olympic Trials!
