Locals will, once again, have the opportunity to burn off some calories from Thanksgiving dinner by running for a good cause.
The Main Street Association will hold its Second Annual Turkey Trot 5K Road Race on Saturday, Nov. 24, where more than a few hundred people are expected to walk and run throughout the course within the town.
â€śIt was really successful and the town is on board,â€ť said Michelle Clark, who will be in charge of the event along with fellow member of the Main Street Association, Amy Moore. â€śWe ended up having 500 in the 5K race and then almost 300 in the one-mile fun run (last year). We had about a 1,000 people out there. Everyone really liked it. We have some people showing interest in it by contacting us.
â€śWe are so excited about this yearâ€™s race and hope that many people decide to make this event a part of their Thanksgiving family tradition.â€ť
