Wild Turkey 5K Run or Walk
8:00 AM





 This is our 3rd annual Wild Turkey trot that benefits H.O.P.E. in Lyndonville! While this is not a timed race by any means, the purpose of this event is to bring community members (and whoever may be in town) together for some morning movement and conversation before heading to their families for Thanksgiving. Kids, dogs, farm animals, and costumes are welcomed!
Please consider bringing a non perishable item or donation for H.O.P.E. that will be collected before the start. Walk or run at your pace for a non competitive morning of exercise and smiles.
8am start in front of my fitness studio
We ask everyone to park in town and walk up to the start as we will not have parking at the starting area. Cafe Lotti should be open for either a hot coffee or cider!
As always, the course is an out an back on Maple lane (mostly flat) past the Brown’s dairy farm on dirt road.
Note: There are no prizes, numbers, or timing. My family is in Maine and I have to leave the area by 9am to take on a 3 hour drive, therefore I will not be hanging around waiting for everyone to finish.
Please accordingly as it will be in the high 20’s at the start.
See you then! See less
