Modesto Turkey Trot and Gobbler Walk -Nov 27


Modesto Turkey Trot and Gobbler Walk planned for Thanksgiving Day

Modesto Junior College Cross Country Team invites anyone looking for some exercise before their Thanksgiving Day dinner to participate in the 15th Annual Modesto Turkey Trot and Gobbler Walk on Thursday, November 27 at the Tuolumne River Regional Park in Modesto.

The fun run for boys and girls (13 years and under) will begin with a half mile boys race at 8:45 a.m., followed by a half mile girls race 9 a.m. The 5 kilometer run will start at 9:30 a.m. and the 5 kilometer Gobbler Walk begins at 9:35 a.m. The 5 kilometer course (3.1 miles) follows the Tuolumne River on a mostly paved path, passing through the old oak groves in the park.

After the race there will be an awards ceremony and refreshments. Awards are given to the top three males and females in eight divisions and all participants in the children’s runs receive a medal.

Pre-registration is available online through November 24 at http://www.finishedresults.com/ModestoTurkeyTrot2014 with registration fees ranging from $17.50 to $30. Race-day registration opens at 7:30 a.m. and closes promptly at 8:30 a.m. with registration fees ranging from $20 to $35. Group rates are available for schools, churches and other pre-registering large groups.

T-shirts will be available for the first 1,200 registrants only, so pre-registration is encouraged. Pre-registered participants can beat the race day rush by picking up their number and shirt the day before the race on November 26 from 2 to 6 p.m. in the MJC Gymnasium located on Coldwell Avenue on East Campus.

All Turkey Trot proceeds will support the MJC Cross Country program. For more information visit www.finishedresults.com/ModestoTurkeyTrot2013 or contact Coach Demitrius Snaer at snared@mjc.edusnared@mjc.edu> or (209) 575-6279.
