Register Now for Scheels Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day

November 10, 2010

Registration is open for the 12th annual Scheels Turkey Trot race held at the Sparks Marina Park. Every year the race brings together walkers and runners of all ages and abilities to celebrate an early morning kick off to the Thanksgiving holiday.

Participants can choose from a non-timed 2 mile walk/run or a 10K timed run, with the first race beginning at 8:30 a.m. New this year, the event will start and finish in the Scheels parking lot at Legends. Due to the popularity of the race, the City of Sparks has realigned the course to better accommodate both runners and walkers.

The cost to participate in Scheels Turkey Trot is $25 per person through Nov. 18 or $30 per person on race day. Each runner and walker will receive a commemorative sweatshirt and post race refreshments. Two dollars from every entry will benefit Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful for local beautification projects.

Early registration is recommended to guarantee desired shirt size. Register online or download an entry form and mail it in. Entry forms also are available at the Sparks Recreation Office, 98 Richards Way and at Scheels at Legends, 1200 Scheels Drive. For more information, call (775) 353-7898.
