Big turnout expected for Turkey Trot

Posted by Geeky Swedes on November 25th, 2009

Thanksgiving morning is the 3rd Annual Turkey Trot and it’s going to be a record-breaker! More than 700 participants are pre-registered for the 5k run/jog/walk which raises money for the Ballard Food Bank.. Given that only a couple hundred people participated last year, organizers were hoping for 500 participants to help raise $6,000 for the food bank. As of earlier this week they’ve already beat their expectations. At the finish line, Inferno Dogs will be serving “Griddles” (think McDonald’s sausage McMuffin) w/ juice at Golden Gardens for a $5 suggested donation with all proceeds going to the Food Bank. The registration is closed, but you can still show up and pay $20 to join in the fun. The 5k starts at 9 a.m. at NW 85th & 32 Ave NW. Here’s a look at the route.

    i always thought it was a bad idea to use the word “trot” with reference to a food.

    here is to nobody getting the turkey trots tonight.

    that's ALOT of runners for an 'open course'

    hope they're able to handle those kinds of numbers

    congrats for a succesful fund drive!

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be at
    the web the simplest thing to understand of. I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time
    as folks consider issues that they just do not recognize about.
    You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and also outlined out
    the entire thing without having side effect , other people can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
