HASTINGS – The Annual Hastings YMCA Turkey Trot will be on November 23rd starting at 8:30 but early bird registration is less than a week away.
There are two different Turkey Trots you can sign up for. One is an individual 5k race, which will be timed, and the other is a family style race. The family race is a more relaxed race where they will have food to collect throughout the route, which is the same one the individual runners will take.
The top ten male and female finishers in the individual race will win a prize. Erika Knott, the wellness director at the Hastings YMCA, says the Turkey Trot goes along with their focus of healthy living.
We really strive to do what we can to help anyone and everyone be active. Whatever that level is. Whether it’s that timed race or whether that’s just getting out and moving your body. There’s been so much science that proves that moving your body adds so many health benefits that we just want to provide something for everyone.
The early bird registration ends on October 15th and you’ll receive a free mug and it will be cheaper. The actual registration deadline is November 20th for the family race and the day of the Turkey Trot for the individual race.
All those who register will receive a free long sleeve t-shirt. You can register at either Hastings YMCAs or on line at HastingsYMCA.net.
