It's the Turkey Day 5k!
THOUSANDS WILL GATHER NOVEMBER 22 FOR
LIFE TIME TURKEY DAY 5K
Work up your Thanksgiving appetite with a race for all ages!
The Life Time Turkey Day 5K in Minneapolis has been a healthy way to start Thanksgiving Day since 1989. Participants can run, jog or walk the 3.1 miles with friends and family, & even the kids can participate in the Turkey Day Kids K, an indoor fun run held at the Life Time Fitness Target Center indoor track with a Kids Carnival to follow.
Life Time Turkey Day 5k joined forces with Second Harvest Heartland to collect food for the less fortunate in our community. Last year, 10,076 pounds of food were collected at the Turkey Day 5K and this year participants are encouraged to donate food or funds to assist Minnesota residents in needs.
The 5K race starts near the Life Time Fitness Target Center and takes participants past City Hall, the Metrodome, the Guthrie Theater, Gold Medal Park and the Mighty Mississippi River ~ now THAT is a beautiful run!
And this weather we are having? YES PLEASE!!
