Turkey Trot 2012

FREE! 45th Annual Turkey Trot

Thursday, November 22
8 a.m. check-in, 9 a.m. Run/Walk
Crystal Lake Park, Urbana

Join the Urbana Park District Thanksgiving morning for an Urbana tradition. Turkey Trot, a one-mile fun run and walk, is a great way to get in some exercise before you sit down for dinner. For the third time, we’ll put the “give” in Thanksgiving by taking donations for the district’s Youth Scholarship Fund. Put the turkey in the oven and check-in at the Lake House in Crystal Lake Park by 9 a.m. Free hot chocolate is provided, and you can stick around after the trot for a raffle of prizes (including frozen turkeys) from local merchants.

Purchase a long-sleeved souvenir T-shirt (S-XL: $12, XXL: $14) at the Phillips Recreation Center between November 8 and 19 and save $2 off the event day price. Participant ribbons will be awarded to the first 800 people who cross the finish line. Parking is available in the Special Event lot on Broadway Avenue.

While this event is free, the Urbana Park District seeks donations for its scholarship fund in any amount. This fund allows the district to provide full and partial fee waivers for those with financial need and helps more residents participate in programs.
