10 REASONS YOU SHOULD RUN, WALK OR TROT IN THIS YEAR’S TURKEY TROT!

by PBUnitedWay

1. The entry fee is only $30 (if you sign up before November 1st) and you’ll help provide Thanksgiving Day meals for families in need in Palm Beach County. Last year’s proceeds provided 827 meals to families right here in our community.  

2. You’ll have a great sense of accomplishment before 9 am.

3. It’s a great workout – running can burn up to 700 calories per hour. You’ll raise your heart rate, lower your blood pressure and relieve stress – all while toning and shaping your body.

4. You’ll feel empowered. A 5K is the first step in showing that you can achieve anything you put your mind to.

5. Running with 1,000 other people is like a party in your running shoes. Don’t believe it?  TRY IT!

6. You’ll get an energy boost to keep you going throughout the long holiday weekend.

7. It’s a fun activity for the whole family – all ages are encouraged to join in the fun. This year is the first Kid’s Fun Run!

8. And with all your family visiting a 5K is the perfect way to relieve stress.

9. You definitely want to show off your cool race day t-shirt. People are still talking about last year’s!

10. Can you think of a better way to spend Thanksgiving morning than running, walking or trotting through Palm Beach all while helping to feed families? Didn’t think so.  And it gives you an excuse to eat that extra slice of pumpkin pie!
