Friends of the Park Turkey Trot is Almost Here!

The 4th Annual Friends of the Wilmington Parks Turkey Trot is only three days away now. There are about 130 runners/walkers pre-registered for this event.

Races begin at 9:00 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day! Registration begins at 8 at the Clinton County YMCA. Runners meeting will begin at approximately 8:45.

We will have free babysitting inside the Clinton County YMCA while parents and older children run/walk the race. We aren't just talking about your babies "sitting" either. Children's activities will begin at 8:30 on the Wilmington College track. There will be a 50 yard dash, 1/4 mile sprint and 1/2 mile run. All children are encouraged to participate. There will all kinds of fun activities inside the YMCA's gym. They will play games like floor hockey, basketball and tag for older kids on one side of the gym. On the other side, we will be playing duck-duck-turkey, crafts and other fun games. All kid activities are free of charge. We want the entire family to come and have a good time for little money.

This is a small organization so please notify us if you will be coming and want a t-shirt on race day. We don't guarantee you will get a shirt on race day if you don't let us know you want one. We try to have them, but we don't want to waste money. Help us save some green by registering ahead.

Contact Heather Harmon at 937-218-0018 for registration and event details.

Hope to see you on Turkey Day!
