Are You Ready to Trot Off That Turkey?

Race takes place in Tamaques Park

Lace up those running shoes, a post-Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot is set for Saturday, Nov. 24 in Tamaques Park. 

The event includes a five-mile run, kicking off at 11:15 a.m., and a one-mile run, starting at 10:30 a.m.

Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned triathlete, Westfield's Gloria Safar, avid runner and personal trainer, has been writing weekly blogs to prepare Turkey Trotters of all abilities for the big day.
