MIFFLINBURG — More than 270 people have registered for the Third Annual Mifflinburg Turkey Trot 5k and Kid’s Fun Run planned for Thanksgiving Day morning beginning at the Mifflinburg Community Park at 9 a.m. The event is not officially timed, however Mifflinburg’s Danielle Ard, this year’s celebrity Turkey, will be racing with the group to challenge the participants to beat the turkey before they eat the turkey.
All those who beat the Turkey, aka Turkey Trotters, will be recognized in the Trotter photo, receive a stamp for their race T-shirt and of course have the right to ruffle the feathers of those who don’t, aka the Turkey Notters. The event is open to participants of all ages and walkers are welcome. The Kids Fun Run, which is approximately .5 miles, will start at 10 a.m. Children of all ages will race against a tired Turkey. Pre-registration is encouraged on www.fitforfunds.com/mifflinburgturkeytrot and is recommended.
Race day registration will be offered and will begin at 7:30 a.m. for the 5k and 9:30 a.m. for the kids fun run. Minors must be accompanied to registration by an adult. For more information contact Tara Michaels at firstname.lastname@example.org or (570) 939-0712.
