SARANAC LAKE - Those looking to work up a Thanksgiving Day appetite and support a great cause should register for the second annual Turkey Trot hosted by Adirondack Medical Center.
The Turkey Trot starts at 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 25, and benefits food pantries in the Tri-Lakes and AMC's Fit for Life Program. This flat, five kilometer run/walk will begin at the Speed Skating Oval in Lake Placid.
Registration is $25 if submitted before Saturday, Nov. 20, or $30 on race day. Bring three nonperishable food items (per racer) the day of the race and receive $5 off registration. Families of three or more may register for $20 per person before Nov. 20. Registration the day of the race begins at 7 a.m. Contact Justin Colby at 897-2483 or e-mail email@example.com to register.
Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female finishers.
There are additional prizes for anyone who can "stuff the turkey" or, in other words, beat the mystery Turkey runner to the finish line. No prizes will be awarded for literally "stuffing" the mystery Turkey runner.
