The Johnson City Turkey Trot 5K is lining up to be the most well-attended race in the event’s 12-year history, and organizers are excited.
Organizers and sponsors of the 12th annual Turkey Trot 5K Road Race and Family Fun Run/Walk arrived at Cherokee Elementary School Thursday to encourage students to participate in the annual fundraiser and to promote health and fitness.
Run now, gobble later.
In late 1984, The Runner Magazine named Johnson City the best running city in the U.S.
A couple of familiar faces finished first in the Up and At ’Em Turkey Trot Thursday morning as more than 4,000 runners and walkers took part in the Thanksgiving Day race through downtown Johnson City.
’Tis the season for extra helpings, it seems.
After 10 years, organizers with Johnson City’s Up and At ’Em Turkey Trot figure this year is a great time to start talking turkey.
The three-month duration between the end of August and the beginning of December has always been my favorite chunk of the calendar year in regards to running.
