Description

The tenth annual Running of the Turkeys through downtown York will take place at 8 a.m. on Thursday, November 28. First Presbyterian and Trinity United Methodist churches will host the event, which will start on the corner of Liberty and Roosevelt Streets, adjacent to the Trinity parking lot.

The Running of the Turkeys was founded in 2010 by local runners and church members wanting to bring a family-friendly Thanksgiving run to York’s historic downtown and to give runners an opportunity to give back to their community.

Pre-registration ends on November 24, but participants may register on the morning of the race. The fee includes a T-shirt. Runners are encouraged to bring non-perishable items for donation on the race date.

Beginning in 2012, the event included a Golf Cart Gobble. Participants decorated golf carts, Kabota’s, tractors, and 4-wheelers for the holidays and led a parade through downtown York. Registration for a vehicle in the Golf Cart Gobble is $5.00.

People Attempting to Help, or PATH, will receive the proceeds and donations along with the Grace and Mercy Soup Kitchen of the Wesley United Methodist. With partner grocery stores buying less food and therefore donating less, PATH’s inventory is at an all time low, while its client base continues to grow. Started in 1982 by the Western York County Christian Ministers Association, PATH has been serving the citizens of York and its outlying environs for 25 years. The not for profit organization includes a food pantry and associated thrift store and provides emergency aid for utilities and other needs for those in crisis.
