Did you overindulge on your Thanksgiving meal—and perhaps at the wine country weekend that followed? Don’t worry, because the Leftover Turkey Trot on November 25th is the perfect opportunity to get back on track. Many take advantage of this fun run to get a head start on their 2018 resolutions.
The 5k run takes place the Saturday after Thanksgiving, so you have a full day to recover. It’s also a fantastic excuse to get up early, get your workout in and then take off to the wineries to continue wining, dining and tasting to your heart’s desire.
Wobbling and Gobbling
The race kicks off at 10 a.m., making this is a popular race for late risers. It all starts at 18th Street in downtown Yakima, and the whole family is welcome. Walk, run, or jog and rev up that metabolism as you help raise funds for Yakima Greenway’s Camp Prime Time. The non-sanctioned event is fun for all, and kids are welcome to join in the fun.
Registration is $25 for adults, $10 for youth or $65 for a family of four. You can register on the day-of at Sarg Hubbard Park between 9 a.m. – 9:45 a.m. Pre-registration isn’t required, so you don’t need to commit ahead of time (sometimes those turkey comas can be serious business!).
