GoModesto – Turkey Trot

Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot
This is without a doubt the best compliment to Thanksgiving Day. Before your meal, how good would it be to get dressed up, take the family and get in a 5K run or walk? Trust me, that extra helping of mashed potatoes will taste that much better after you start the day at the MJC Turkey Trot at Legion Park. This is a family friendly 3.1 mile course on a paved path with some grass and dirt. The 1/2 mile kids run will be on grass, 1/4 mile out and 1/4 mile back. There is also a Gobbler Walk, an event for just walkers on the same 5k course. Strollers/dogs are welcomed. Lots of parking, easy run and a lot of fun. Check in begins at 7:30 am and races start 8:45 for the kids and 1Ž2 and 9:30 for the 5K. Overall male and female finishers will receive a medal. T-shirts will be provided and will be guaranteed to the first 1200 entrants. Please no strollers, headphones, or dogs in the 5K run. We will see you there. November 24.
