Lots of ways to enjoy Turkey trot

Turkey Trot participants from last year's event.
Special to The R-C

Registration is now open for the third annual Carson Valley Turkey Trot, a fun 5k walk/run on Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 28. Be at Minden Park at 7:30 a.m. Thanksgiving is all about family so all ages are welcome at this community event. Parents may run along with their kids in the “Turkey Dash” if desired, and do feel free to bring your little ones in strollers. Sorry, for safety reasons no scooters, skateboards or bikes are permitted. Dogs on leash are welcome too, as long as they are kid and dog-friendly. You can walk, jog, or run, or do a little of both — it’s your choice. To add to the fun, there will be coffee, hats, snacks, swag bags, photo booths, and prizes (the top three in each age division for the 5k will receive awards).
