Just about everyone loves Thanksgiving–well, except for the turkey. Landmark Preschool is making sure everyone earns their turkey on Thanksgiving morning, hosting “The Great Turkey Escape” 5K Road Race and 1K Kids Run. Run fast, catch him, and make sure your meal doesn’t get away!*

The start and finish will be at the West Redding Volunteer Fire Department, 306 Umpawaug Rd in Redding. The 5K race begins at 8 a.m., and the 1K kids run will happen at 9 a.m.. Interested runners can learn more and register online at www.thegreatturkeyescape.com. Organizers suggest registering soon as there are a limited number of runner spots available (due to available parking at the location). They say, if you plan on running a Thanksgiving 5K, Redding should be your destination!

The cost to register is $35 for the 5K, $15 for 1K. Proceeds benefit the Redding Boy Scouts of America, West Redding Volunteer Fire Department, New Pond Farm Education Center and the Landmark Preschool Education Fund.

*No turkeys are actually involved in this race. We’re just having a little fun!
