Saturday September 19th, 2015. 10:00 AM. Worthington, MN.

THE RACE:
Since its beginning in 1980, this event has grown to become one of the area's premier roadraces. The festive spirit of the Turkey Day 10K has attracted both the serious runners who compete regularly as well as individuals entering their first roadrace. The energizing music at the registration area and along the course, the ideal September running conditions, the crowds of cheering spectators, the experienced volunteer staff, the soothing massage at the finish, the free picnic with live entertainment, the classic designer T-shirt and many other amenities have made this "not your ordinary race".

THE COURSE:

The certified 10K (6.2 mile) course begins in downtown Worthington, and winds its way around scenic Lake Okabena. The course consists of hard-surfaced roads which are wide and partially shaded. The course is slightly rolling, just enough to make it interesting and fast. Traffic will be controlled for the safety of the runners. Miles 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 will be marked with large road signs. After circling the lake, the race ends back in downtown Worthington where hundreds of spectators cheer the runners through the finishing mile.

PICNIC RECEPTION:

After the race there will be a picnic reception for all the runners at the finish line area. It's the ideal time to renew acquaintances with area runners and to talk over the race. While runners enjoy a free picnic lunch and refreshments, they will be entertained with lively music. They will also be eligible to win one of many running-related door prizes. The picnic will conclude with the awards ceremony.

AWARDS:

All race entrants will receive a classic Turkey Day 10K T-shirt featuring art work by well-known area cartoonist, Bob Artley. Medals will be presented to the top 3 finishers in each age category (14 and under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80 and above). Chamber Buck prizes are listed below.
