What better way to start Thanksgiving than with running and eating pie?
Sign up for Wicomico County Recreation, Parks & Tourism’s ninth annual Turkey Trek 5K, and you can do just that.
I am the assistant director of marketing and public relations for Wicomico County Recreation, Parks & Tourism, so it’s my job to promote this race. I love that I get to do this as part of my job!
Even before I worked for Wicomico County, I had volunteered at this race with the Eastern Shore Running Club, which I’ve done the past few years. It’s a great way to enjoy the morning.
If you sign up by Wednesday, Nov. 1, you can guarantee a race shirt or opt for a long-sleeved shirt for an additional $5.
