More Americans participate in races on Thanksgiving Day than any other day of the year! Join the crowd and start your holiday on the right foot by participating in the Burbank Community YMCA Turkey Trot. This family-friendly 5K/10K race is open to runners, walkers, stroller-pushers and pets. Costumes welcome! There is a Pre-Race Expo for all and Kid's Fun Zone for the little ones. In addition, you'll get a commemorative tech T-shirt to wear around town throughout the year. Everyone will know you did the race Thanksgiving morning.
You have seven weeks to prepare and achieve your 5K or 10K goal. There are lots of "Couch to 5K" apps and programs to follow. Click here to try one from the Mayo Clinic. The general idea is to start with a short distance and alternate walking and jogging. Each time you head out for a run, you increase either the jogging time or the distance. Eventually, you can run the entire distance!
The Turkey Trot is a great Burbank community day with people from all areas of city life coming together to move their bodies before sitting down to dinner. It's fun to see so many friends gathered for the event. John and I will participate with our family, including a stroller and two dogs, while wearing turkey headwear and Pilgrim hats. Look for us!
