MARQUETTE - The annual Marquette Turkey Trot five- and 10-kilometer runs and walks will take place at 9 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 22, at Marquette Senior High School.
Entry fee is $10 per person that benefits the MSHS orchestra, or $30 per person if a T-shirt is desired, with shirt sales to benefit the school's Business Professionals of America organization. This year's North Face/Mountain Hardware performance T-shirt includes a logo designed by a Marquette student.
The first-place male and female at each distrance receives a trophy. Leashed dogs are welcome, and a trophy will also be presented to the fastest dogs on the 5K and 10K courses.
Registration takes place from 8 to 8:40 a.m. on race day at the MSHS canopy entrance and the school's Room 101 on West Fair Avenue, while preregistered entrants can also choose to pick up race numbers and T-shirts from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 21, at the canopy entrance.
The race will be held rain, snow or shine, and items for the TV6 Canathon canned food drive can be dropped off.
