All are invited on Thanksgiving morning to run, walk or jog in the 8th Annual Turkey Trot. The route for the race follows Fort Lauderdale Beach along A1A in a USA Track & Field sanctioned 5k.
The 5K starts at DC Alexander Park, 501 S. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., with the course along State Road A1A. All proceeds from the event will be divided between Leadership Broward Foundation and the Helena Ramsay Soaring Leader Scholarship, which was created by MedPro Healthcare Staffing in memory of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Helena Ramsay who was killed in the Feb. 14 mass shooting.
Aside from indirectly assisting local charities, registrants will also receive a race T-shirt, custom bib number with timing chip and a racer bag filled with products and coupons from The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, BurgerFi, Wizard Creations and Running Depot, among others.
The event will conclude with an awards ceremony recognizing the top three overall male and female athletes as well as the first-, second- and third-place age group winners. Music will be playing throughout the event and there will also be a Kids Zone with activities for children. Food such as fruit, bagels, protein bars, juice and more will be provided.
