Fairmount Park Five Mile Turkey Trot Thanksgiving Morning

Hi all.

There's a five mile race in Fairmount Park on Thanksgiving morning. I always sign up to run this race. It's a good way to pre-burn your Thanksgiving dinner. Last year some of us did the race and others just met up for a run and after we all met for coffee before going home for our Thanksgiving meals.

Post here if you're interested and we'll sort the details out later.

Here's the registration site for the race:

Hi Seth,

I registered this morning.


Your Next Race & Date: Turkey Trot 5 Mile

Re: Fairmount Park Five Mile Turkey Trot Thanksgiving Morning


I called Parkway Corner this afternoon. They're open on Thanksgiving. I figure I can be there by about 10am and I invite others to meet up there for coffee at that time, whether or not you're running that morning.

For those running, but not running the Turkey Trot, I propose a 9am meetup at Lloyd Hall (Art Museum will have Thanksgiving parade going on), but ultimately it's up to folks who are running.

If you're planning on coming out to run tomorrow or for coffee, please post here and let me know.


Happy Thanksgiving!
