Gearing up for the Turkey Trot
November 12, 2012
group of intrepid runners gathered for
last year's Turkey Trot Thanksgiving
morning, and even more are expected this
The fourth annual Thanksgiving Turkey Trot, a
free and fine way to burn off some calories as
well as get a head start on pumpkin pie, is
shaping up to be better than ever, and for the
first time, runners can opt to buy a cute and
witty T-shirt, complete with typo.
I went to the printers," said organizer and run
founder Carolyn Testa, "I didn't catch that I
put third annual on instead of fourth, so next
year's shirts will say fifth annual and everyone
will wonder what happened to the fourth."
Those in the know, including Bonners Ferry Mayor
Dave Anderson, who has run in every one, will
have an insight and something to snicker about
in addition to the T-shirt, emblazoned on the
back, "I Run for Pie."
That's because, at the finish line, runners will
be treated to a slice of fresh pumpkin pie,
piled high with whipped cream.
In addition, all runners will be entered into
drawings for turkeys and Indian corn wreaths to
be given away.
Runners will be gathering at the fairgrounds at
about 8:30 a.m. Thursday, November 22, for the 9
a.m. start, and they can choose either the 5K or
10K route. Runners are only asked to bring a
non-perishable food item to be donated to the
Bonners Ferry Food Bank.
Oh, and bring $10 if you want a great T-shirt.
The sculpted abs are not included.
I know ... I asked.
