The Great Milwaukee Turkey Day Run / Walk starts at the Boerner Botanical Gardens. The starting line is in the middle of the gardens and follows Whitnall Park Dr though Whitnall Park. Runners make a turn before the Whitnall Park Golf course and then head back to the Boerner Botanical Gardens for a grand finish. This road course has winding curves and minor rolling hills. Great for a late year PR or a casual walk.
