If you want to get in some exercise before filling up on turkey, dressing and pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving Day while also donating some money to a good cause, then keep reading.
The 13th-Annual Williamsburg Turkey Trot 5-K run/walk will take place Thanksgiving morning. Last year over 200 people participated and raised about $9,000.
As of Tuesday about 228 people had already pre-registered for the event.
Proceeds go to benefit the Williamsburg Police Department Shop with a Cop program, which takes less fortunate children on $100 Christmas shopping sprees at Wal-Mart. Last year, the program was able to help over 120 children.
The registration fee is $25 for adults and $20 for students. All participants will receive t-shirts as long as supplies last.
Homemade holiday desserts will be given out to all first place winners. The overall male and female winners will also each receive a free turkey.
Downloadable race registration forms can be found online at www.williamsburgky.com.
Race registration begins at 8 a.m. Thursday at Bill Woods Park. The race will start at 9 a.m. at the park and will also finish at the park.
Tax-deductible donations can be made to the Shop with a Cop program.
Make checks payable to Williamsburg Shop with a Cop and send them to Williamsburg City Hall, Attention: Gina Hamblin, P.O. Box 119, Williamsburg, KY 40769. Those needing a receipt should include a self-addressed stamped envelope.
