fun race - For most individuals it is a fun race to do with family and friends on this Thanksgiving day before a long day of food and football games. For those who are in it to win you can get your trophy or ribbon/award for running faster than the Mayor or Turkey (Depending on the year).

Great first time experience

I walked/ran the 5k on the treadmill for a few weeks in advance to prepare, but that wasn't even necessary. The event was a comically slow mass of jovial/giggling/chatting participants, so I spent the whole time skipping along (happy to have gloves, but wishing I had remembered ear muffs -- maybe have those in next year's participant packet?). Organization was pretty good with some opportunity for improvement in information for beginners. Raffle prizes were fun (won movie tiks)!

Good program!

My daughter ran your 5k last year, and was able to talk her 2 brothers into running it with her this year(all under 30 minutes). My husband, her daughter and boyfriend, and I were on the sidelines watching. We had a blast!! We have decided to make this a Thanksgiving tradition, and hopefully talk her other brother to do it too!! Thank you for all you do!!
