This Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 25, 2010, the City of Tamarac will mark a milestone— the 30th Anniversary of the Tamarac Turkey Trot 5K race! Over 1,500 runners and 1,000 spectators make Tamarac’s annual Turkey Trot one of the City’s most popular events; not to mention one of the most anticipated running events of the year with participants from all over the State, Country, and even the world! Help us celebrate this milestone! This Thanksgiving morning, wake up early, throw your turkey in the oven, grab your running shoes, or perhaps your lawn chair if you prefer to be a spectator and cheer the runners on. Get your Thanksgiving festivities off to a great start by celebrating this City tradition with friends and family! The Tamarac Turkey Trot 5K Race is the City of Tamarac’s signature event. The certified race course starts at 77th Street and N.W. 88th Avenue, winds through the Woodmont community and ends at City Hall. Participants are treated with complimentary fruit, snacks, refreshments, and massages, and the event ends with an awards ceremony presented in all age categories from under 10 through 80 and over. Awards are given to the top three runners in each age group and to the top three overall. Join us Thanksgiving Day, November 25, at Tamarac City Hall, 7525 N.W. 88th Avenue. Race starts promptly at 7:30 am. Register early at www.splitsecondtiming.com or www.tamarac.org; or call (954) 597-3620 for more information.
