Needed better planning this yr

The organizers did not plan well for the increase in participants from last year. The lines for the 3 Port-a-Potties were too long. The packet pick up wasn't well done either. It was divided into A-L and M-Z lines which resulted into a long M-Z line at the end. Needed more flexibility. The start was delayed by 10 min which made sense to do. Hope they improve next yr. The race itself was fine and well done. The 2 mi. marker seemed long, but this is a minor quibble.

Turkey Trot

Enjoy starting Thanksgiving with Turkey Trot!!! Missed the pancakes this year. :( I would rather money from tshirt to go to cause, I didn't wear mine, so would have opted out and given extra $$$ to the Rescue Mission.

Great Experience

I have walked (running is unhealthy don't even THINK of it!) in both Turkey Trots put on by the Orange County Rescue Mission, and I had a marvelous experience each time. I can think of no better way to start out a day of thankfulness than doing something that's fun and is good for my body and that helps others less fortunate than I am. Small internet glitch that the race was not happening in 2015.
