Sheep Dog Turkey Trot 5K Event Race Description

The 2016 Turkey Trot 5K event is coming on Thanksgiving morning, November 24th at the Outlets of Little Rock, the newest and most talked about shopping venue in central AR. There will be a traditional 5K race, a 1 Mile Fun Walk and the Wild Gobbler 5K Run (w/ five exercise stations on the route). The final leg of all three races will wind through the shopping center itself and end at the common area. The event will benefit our Christmas Outreach program where we provide Christmas gifts to the children of military and first responder families in need in Central AR. Each child will receive toys from their wish list, clothing, shoes and other items they otherwise would not have received. The mission of SDIA focuses on supporting the unique needs of military and first responders “Sheep Dogs” and their families.
