Turkey Trot Along Salmon Creek Trail

Thanksgiving Morning Fun Run.

Now here is a way to work up your appetite for Thanksgiving Dinner!  The Turkey Trot, a family friendly fun run Thanksgiving morning, November 25, 2010, starting at 9 am.

The  Turkey Trot is a family-friendly 5K Run/Walk or 10K Run along the beautiful Salmon Creek Trail, starting and ending at Klineline Pond in Vancouver, WA.  Participants can trot at their own pace (and distance) and even bring along their dogs!  For those daring enough to take the plunge, there will be a Polar Bear Swim at Klineline Pond after the race.  There is even going to be a pinata for the kids!

While there is no registration fee for the Turkey Trot, all participants are encouraged to donate to the Principal’s Checkbook — a local program that helps disadvantaged kids in our schools. ” Just show up on race day. Put on your shoes and get out there and do the 5K or 10K. We’ll treat you with respect, report your time, count you as a winner. But if you can give, do give. And if you are able to give the minimum of $15, we’ll even set you up with a race T-shirt plus whatever else we can obtain from local sponsors. But don’t stop at $15. Give more. You are directly helping kids in our schools. The money (all of it) goes straight to the school targeting the truly underprivileged. Nobody takes a cut and makes something. Just the kids. So, give $20 or $30 or whatever you can. If you don’t have it, come out and race anyhow. We are glad to just see you on Thanksgiving Morning!” ~ Excerpt from the Clark County Turkey Trot Blog.
