A fun Thanksgiving morning race that has become a family tradition for families in the Saginaw Valley Area. The 5k course is a single loop on a beautiful wooded trail along the scenic Tittabawassee River. The 1m Youth Run is a Single loop in the back of the park.

After 11/1 shirts are not guarantee and the cost goes up to $10 per participant after 11/1. Race day registration will take place from 8:00 - 9:00 am.
