If you are local to the New Paltz area or even if you are visiting family and friends, chances are pretty good you've heard of a little event called the New Paltz Turkey Trot at this point. It has grown immensely over the years and is much more than just a 5k race/walk. It has become a great tradition every Thanksgiving for friends and family to get together for a fun community event before diving into all the deliciousness that follows the rest of the day. Chances are you'll probably run into a friend or two you haven't seen in a while as well. It is also an important fundraiser for Family of New Paltz which provides invaluable services for those in need.
This year's Trot is shaping up to be a chilly one with some wind to go along with it but don't let that scare you away! Whether it is your first Turkey Trot, first 5k ever or you can't remember how many 5k's you've done, it is a fantastic event and a flat, easy course. So come join the fun, support a great organization that is so important to the community, and burn some calories before digging into your feast! Registration is still open on Wednesday at the Jewish Community Center from noon-6pm or the morning before the race at Water Street Market. Race is set to go off at 9am.
For all information and details about the Trot, you can head over to their website: www.newpaltzturkeytrot.com/index.html
See you race day!
