Second annual Virtual Turkey Trot scheduled, per-registration open

Overindulging near the Thanksgiving holiday is as much of a tradition as the parade in New York City, football games on the TV, and a “Friends” marathon.

The Polk County Health and Wellness Coalition will again have an event to kick off the Thanksgiving holiday season and help burn some of those calories you packed away from eating Grandma’s pumpkin pie.

Registration for the second annual Virtual Turkey Trot is live. Click here to register for the event.

The cost is $25 and you can run or walk (or trot) the five kilometers for the event any time between Sunday, Nov. 21 and Saturday, Nov. 27.

The deadline to sign up is Thursday, Nov. 18. You will receive an official Turkey Trot 5k T-shirt and a 5k medal upon completion of the Turkey Trot. You will be able to pick up your shirt and medal at Stearns Education Center in Columbus Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. after Dec. 1. More information is available at the event page.
