Fit & Able is proud to bring back the Turkey Chase! We hope you enjoyed the delicious Thanksgiving eats with your friends and family. But now it's time to burn off the turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and pie! With three distances - including a 5K, 10K, and 20K - you can choose your challenge!
This year we are going IN-PERSON and VIRTUAL! That means you can choose to run at Umstead State Park or wherever you are - near or far - you can participate in a great race to support an amazing organization. All you need to do is run wherever you want and submit your times online! It's really fun and super easy!
All in-person and virtual 5K, 10K, & 20K runners will get a Turkey Chase embroidered knit hat and finishers medal guaranteed if signed up by November 15th.
The Turkey Chase is part of Fit & Able's Omega Sports Free-for-All Race Series.
