Runners, joggers, and walkers can get their exercise in before chowing down on Thanksgiving Day with the First Coast Turkey Trot 5K or 1-Mile Fun Run. The race begins at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 24, 2022, at 100 Beachwalk Club Drive, St. Johns Florida.
A professional chip-timed race — by Florida Race Day — the path runs along Ponte Vedra Boulevard. In keeping with the family holiday, adults and children run together in both the 5K and the 1-Mile Fun Run. The first 50 kids that are 10 and under can register for free. Shirt availability is only guaranteed to runners who register early. Awards will be based on age and gender, and the top overall male and female will win pumpkin pies.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Heal Foundation, a strong advocate for families that have children with autism.
Registration: $35 for the 5K Turkey Trot and $30 for the 1-Mile Fun Run. To register visit here.
