How to Line up Thanksgiving Morning:

  • The race begins at 8:30am.
  • Runners should line up based on average mile time. Please let those who are speedy start in the front!
  • Walkers should be toward the back.
  • Strollers and dogs must start at the very back of the pack. Dogs must remain on leashes throughout the duration of the race. 
  • Please look for the large signs with mile times at the starting line to help you line up. This will help everyone have a great race morning experience.

See everyone at packet pick up!
