GOBBLE, GOBBLE TIME IS HERE 2010!
By Tom Meany
The Turkey Trot is upon us. Thanksgiving morning, the race starts punctually at 9 A.M. The course is the same 5 mile course as last year. We liked the change and so did you. The race is capped at 2,500, so register early.
We are giving Saucony tech arm warmers. They come in three sizes, which should fit about everyone. As in the past, there are medals for all finishers! We also urge you to pick up your race packets at one of the designated Jack Rabbit locations beforehand to avoid long lines on race day. The location of the race day pickup has changed.
The skating rink and parking lot will be closed as of 11/1/10 in preparation for demolition.
Race day packet pickup will be at the Boathouse, just behind the Oriental Pavilion. We will have plenty of volunteer greeters to guide you there.
ALONG WITH NO PARKING THERE WILL ALSO BE NO CARS ALLOWED IN THE PARK, NOT EVEN FOR PICKUP OR DROPOFF!
We urge runners to take public transportation or walk. For those who are driving, we suggest you park on
Flatbush Ave., north of Empire Blvd. Give yourself plenty of time for walking to the start.
In addition to
boys & girls track team volunteers, we will have volunteers from Team In Training . Team in Training has agreed to provide volunteers for both this race and the Cherry Tree. We welcome their support and support their programs in turn. Bishop Ford High School
We still have room for PPTC volunteers, so let Richard Weaver know.
You can volunteer beforehand and still run the race. Either running or volunteering is a great way to start a day of thanksgiving. If this has not been your tradition, this is a great opportunity to start one for yourself and/or your family.
