Turkey Trot set for Thanksgiving

MARQUETTE — Marquette Senior High School will be holding its annual 5-kilometer and 10K Turkey Trot run/walk from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Thanksgiving, according to the city of Marquette.

The “longstanding event” will start at the Marquette Senior High School and proceed west along Fair Avenue to the multi-use path, where it will then cross Fair Avenue and proceed north along the path to Hawley Street, then east along the path to Lakeshore Boulevard, then north along the path on Lakeshore Boulevard to the ore dock.

Runners and walkers will return along the same route to finish at the Marquette Senor High School. The 5K walk/run will follow part of the same route, turning around near Tourist Park.

An alternate route may have to be followed in the event of inclement conditions, city officials said.

However, no city streets will be closed for the event and the public is asked to use caution while driving in these areas, according to the city of Marquette.
