This Thanksgiving Day race is in its 13th year!  Proceeds benefits Special Olympics.  It's a great way to start your Thanksgiving and for a great cause.  This year, there are options for an "in-person" race or a virtual race with several suggested neighborhood routes.

The "In-Person" race is our traditional 5k route on Fountain Blvd. with Speedy Feet providing chip timing, pictures, video and results. The race will be limited to 500 participants.  There will be no-race day registration.  All registration will be online and end on November 15.  There will be social distancing pre- and post-race.  The race will have a staggered start and due to COVID restrictions there will be no awards and no 1-mile event this year.

The Neighborhood 5k is a virtual race that you can run on one of our alternate routes to be run on your own or with your family 
and friends. There will be water and snacks near the race start for the neighborhood routes. The courses are not marked and may not be an accurate 5k.  You will have the option to submit your results to see how your time stacks up against other Neighborhood 5k runners.

Details for packet pickup are still being finalized, but there is an option to simply have your shirt and chip mailed to you.
